Currently ranked 5th in the entire south region of the US, the UNC-Pembroke RN-BSN program is known for its effectiveness and seamless transition for students. Courses are offered online in a 8 week format, with the exception of two courses that are taught at our distance education sites. Students can decide whether to complete our program within 12 months (accelerated) or they can use the self-pace option that we offer. Our RN-BSN is designed to build upon the students’ Associate Degree in Nursing and will eventually provide opportunities for nurses to advance their nursing careers. UNC-Pembroke’s nursing faculty is highly qualified as nurse educators as well as in the areas of scholarship and service. They use their expertise to enhance the student’s learning experience, individualizing course work whenever possible. We are nationally accredited by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The University of North Carolina at Pembroke is ranked in the top 100 Universities in South Region and also known for the personal attention that students receive. Thank you for showing interest in our program and we look forward to hearing from you.
The University of North Carolina at Pembroke Department of Nursing will be hosting a Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) accreditation site visit November 10-12, 2014. This visit is part of the process for seeking continuing nursing professional accreditation through CCNE for the Baccalaureate Nursing Program and initial nursing professional accreditation for the Master’s Nursing Program.
The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education is an autonomous accrediting agency, which ensures the quality and integrity of professional nursing programs. As a voluntary, self-regulatory process, CCNE accreditation supports and encourages continuing self-assessment by nursing programs and supports continuing growth and improvement of collegiate professional nursing education.
Prior to the accreditation visit, schools of nursing are required to provide an opportunity for communities of interest (e.g., students, alumni, faculty, employers, etc.) to provide third party comments about our program, students, and graduates directly to CCNE. Written and signed third-party comments related to the program’s compliance with the accreditation standards will be accepted by CCNE until October 11, 2014. CCNE will share comments with members of the on-site evaluation team prior to the November visit, but at no time during the review process will these comments be shared with the nursing program.
Any specific signed third-party comments relating to the accreditation process should be directed to the CCNE home office at the address listed below:
