News and Acknowledgements


Purdue School of Nursing’s baccalaureate, master’s, DNP and post graduate APRN certificate programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

Part of the process of maintaining ongoing accreditation is a periodic visit by an accrediting team and completion of a self-study.

Purdue School of Nursing’s graduate programs, Master’s, Post Graduate APRN Certificate, and Doctor of Nursing Practice will be visited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) in early October 2014.

CCNE requests that we offer our “Community of Interest” an opportunity to submit third-party, confidential comments up to 30 days prior to their Purdue visit. Comments are to be sent directly to CCNE by September 1, 2014.

Comments should be submitted in writing to:

Catherine Sneed

In Fall 2009, the School hosted an accreditation visit for its Doctor of Nursing Practice and Master's programs, and in April 2010 the CCNE board agreed with the report from the accreditation visitors that there were no deficiencies or recommendations. Both programs received the maximum number of years of approval; the Master's program received 10 years, and the DNP received five years (standard for an initial approval).
