We received notification this week that the CCNE Board of Commissioners granted accreditation to the baccalaureate degree program in nursing at Vanguard University of Southern California for 10 years, extending to June 30, 2024. The Board also acted to grant accreditation to the master’s program in nursing at Vanguard University of Southern California for 5 years, extending to June 30, 2019. Ten years of accreditation is the maximim length of time given to ongoing program; five years of accreditation is the maximum length of time given to any new nursing program, so we have much to be proud of. This accreditation action is effective as of November 13, 2013, which is the first day of the programs’ recent CCNE on-site evaluation. I want to extend my sincere thanks to all who participated in the November 2013 CCNE visit and all who continue make the Vanguard nursing program the best it can be.
Go Vanguard nursing!
Dr. Mary Wickman, Professor and Nursing Program Director
