May 27, 2014

Waterloo – Allen College chancellor Dr. Jerry Durham has announced that the College’s Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program has received an initial five year accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).  Vice-chancellor of Academic Affairs Dr. Nancy Kramer said that with this most recent accreditation, all of Allen College’s nursing and health science programs that are eligible for national accreditation have achieved accreditation.

According to Chancellor Durham, CCNE’s Board of Commissioners determined that Allen College’s DNP program met all four accreditation standards without compliance concerns.  "We are very pleased to receive this national accreditation of our DNP program that  confirms our commitment to excellence and to achieving the highest standards of education and practice for our doctoral students” said Dr. Kendra Williams-Perez, Dean of Allen’s School of Nursing.

CCNE is the nation's premier accrediting body for undergraduate and graduate nursing degree programs. Earning national accreditation from CCNE shows that Allen Colleges nursing programs meet the highest standards for nursing education and contribute to improving healthcare in the United States. The College’s bachelors and master’s degree nursing programs are also accredited by the CCNE.
