Nursing Department Awarded 10-Year Accreditation

Nationally recognized for their commitment to excellence

Oct. 31, 2012 By Jessica Airey

The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) recently awarded Biola University's nursing program with a 10-year accreditation, the commission's highest level of endorsement. This achievement establishes the competitive program as nationally recognized for their commitment to excellence.

"Nursing is a highly regulated discipline. We seek approval by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN), for which we will renew in 2013. We also seek national accreditation. This holds us in very high regard in the national nursing education community," said Susan Elliott, director and professor for the nursing department.

Outside of the everyday academic responsibilities, earning these credentials took extra effort on the part of the department faculty, current students, staff and alumni. They needed to demonstrate how the program meets the four core CCNE standards: high-quality mission and governance; institutional commitment and resources; and curriculum and teaching-learning practices; evidence of effectiveness to aggregate student and faculty outcomes.

Biola's program first received accreditation from the National League of Nursing and then raised the bar to meet the CCNE criteria for five years initially in 2007. Since then, a self-study completed in late 2011 served to emphasize the program's achievement of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing 2008 Essentials of Baccalaureate Nursing Education standards. In March 2012, three reviewers spent several days on and off campus conducting interviews to determine whether the nursing program qualified for the new certificate. These analysts, representing nursing education and clinical practice, spoke with nursing program administration, faculty, students, university leadership and alumni. They also met with members of the community of interest, such as clinical agency workers from Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital, Children's Hospital of Orange County, City of Hope Medical Center, St. Francis Medical Center and other facilities that currently employ or have hired Biola graduates in the past.

"Accreditation by this body is nationally recognized as a hallmark of excellence. The nursing faculty worked above and beyond the daily demands of academic life to document the richness of the Biola nursing program," said Elliott. "Our students and alumni confirmed our presentation and made us proud. We greatly appreciated the time and contribution of our clinical partners in supporting our commitment to excellence,"

Biola nursing education is a learner-centered experience incorporating Christian faith into evidence-based theoretical content and diverse clinical opportunities. A Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree is offered upon completion of the university baccalaureate and major requirements. The competitive clinical nursing program accepts a limited number of applicants every year.
