Felician College’s School of Nursing receives full CCNE accreditations

The Felician College School of Nursing has received initial accreditation of its new DNP program as well as reaccreditation of its MSN and post-graduate APRN certificate programs, the school announced in a Nov. 13 news release.

The accreditations were granted by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, an accrediting agency for baccalaureate and higher degree nursing programs in the U.S.

“The accreditation of our new DNP program, launched in 2012, is a major milestone in the history of the college,” Anne Prisco, PhD, president of Felician College, said in the release. “Our growing nursing program now has more than 600 students, and we are proud that the first class of DNP students will receive their doctoral degrees in the spring.”

Felician has campuses in Lodi, N.J., and Rutherford, N.J.

“We are especially pleased the DNP received the maximum initial accreditation of five years, which attests to the dedication and commitment of the graduate nursing faculty and the entire college community to quality education,” Muriel Shore, EdD, RN, dean of the nursing school, said in the release. “With the full 10-year accreditation of the master’s programs and the post-graduate advanced practice RN certificate program, students, employers and the patients that our nursing graduates serve can be assured of the quality of the nursing education programs sponsored by Felician College.”

Shore said the national accreditation outcome was the result of a lengthy process of self-study and an on-site evaluation by CCNE.

    I am currently looking to go back to school to receive my RN. I have a Bachelor of Science from Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo Michigan!

    I have been looking for a nursing program in which I can enroll as soon as possible & fast track!

    In addition to my Bachelor’s of Science, I have been a volunteer EMT for 18 years.

    I am a single mother and my son is now in high school, so I am able to take on the responsibilities that it takes to become an RN!
    All my class work was involved in all the sciences. I would like to know what I need to do in order to be admitted asap! I have all my transcripts and I have not done any high school or college studies since 1988. I would like to know what I need to do in order to get admitted to your program?
    Can someone get back to me as soon as possible and let me know what you require for admission, other than my transcripts. I am willing to come in an speak with any advisor as you see necessary! I am really excited about pursuing nursing! Tell me what I need to do and I will do it.
    I will need some financial aid!
    I have been a stay at home mom since my son was born, and I want to be able to support the two of us.
    I have numerous references and if you feel I need to take some courses, I can do so asap!
