The Southeastern North Carolina Nursing Consortium, a joint program between The University of North Carolina at Pembroke and Fayetteville State University, announced receipt of accreditation for 10 years from the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
"The consortium nursing program is the first in North Carolina to obtain CCNE accreditation and the faculty, and staff of the consortium would like to say thanks to all the health care agencies and all community resources who helped make this possible," said Dr. Virginia Wirtz, consortium director. "We are very pleased at this important milestone in the development of the program."
Started in 1992, the program offers the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree to students on both campuses. This unique program is the first professional nursing program offered in North Carolina designed exclusively for registered nurses.
