The River Valley Community College Nursing Program recently took another major step toward regaining national accreditation. The Nursing Program hosted site visitors from the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and the New Hampshire Board of Nursing from February 10-12. At the completion of the visit, the ACEN visitors recommended initial accreditation for five years finding the program’s self-study report in compliance with ACEN standards.
Dr. Patricia Shinn, Nursing Department Chair, said “I am so pleased the ACEN visitors recognized the hard work we put into revising the nursing curriculum. As we move forward, this program has the potential to become one of the strongest in the area.”
