The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) Accreditation Review

The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) accredits the baccalaureate degree program in nursing offered by the Arizona College of Nursing (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).

The CCNE on-site accreditation review for the College of Nursing is scheduled October 18, 19 and 20, 2021. Our last CCNE accreditation review occurred in 2016.

You are invited to submit written comments about our degree program to CCNE no later than September 17, 2021.  CCNE shares third-party comments with members of the evaluation team before the visit, but at no time during the review process are these comments shared with the program. 

During its review of Arizona College of Nursing’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree program, the evaluation team considers third-party comments that relate to the accreditation standards. All third-party comments submitted to CCNE must be written in English, consistent with CCNE’s policy on Conduct of Business. CCNE accepts only signed comments for inclusion in the accreditation review process.

If you would like to submit third-party comments regarding the Arizona College of Nursing program currently scheduled for review, please submit to thirdpartycomments@ccneaccreditation.org.

Alternatively, if you prefer, mail signed comments to:
