Call for Third-Party Comments Concerning Accreditation of Kent State Nursing Programs

Dear students, faculty, alumni, friends, and other constituents:

Kent State University College of Nursing will host an accreditation visit by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) from Mar. 14 to 16, 2018. CCNE will be conducting an on-site evaluation of our baccalaureate in nursing, master's in nursing, Doctor of Nursing Practice, and post-graduate APRN certificate programs.

In accordance with CCNE’s procedures, the Commission provides the opportunity for program constituents and other interested parties to submit, in writing, third-party comments concerning our program's qualifications for accreditation.

We invite you to submit comments to CCNE at

Or, if you prefer, mail comments to:

Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education
Attn: Third-Party Comments
655 K Street NW, Suite 750
Washington, DC 20001

Comments must be received by no later than February 21, 2018, 21 days prior to the first day of the on-site evaluation.

Third-party comments must relate to the CCNE Standards for Accreditation of Baccalaureate and Graduate Nursing Programs (2013). All third-party comments must be written in English. Comments are shared only with the CCNE evaluation team appointed to review our program. At no time during the review process are these comments shared with us.

Thank you for your contribution to the accreditation process. If you have any questions about this process, please contact Clare Hamilton of CCNE at or 202-887-6791, ext. 268.
