Nursing Program Accredited by Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education
The baccalaurate program at Ohio Northern University is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), One Dupont Circle, NW, Suite 350, Washington, DC 20036, 202-887-6791.
To receive this distinction, the ONU program met four accreditation standards. The standards include three program quality areas: mission and governance; institutional commitment and resources; and curriculum and teaching learning practices. The fourth is a measure of program effectiveness in student performance and faculty accomplishments.
CCNE is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a national accreditation agency. The accreditation process is designed to ensure the quality and integrity of baccalaureate and graduate education programs in preparing effective nurses. As a voluntary, self-regulatory process, CCNE accreditation supports and encourages continuing self-assessment by nursing education programs and the continuing growth and improvement of collegiate professional education.
The next on site evaluation from CCNE will take place in the spring of 2023.
The Nursing Program and Department received full approval from the Ohio Board of Nursing for the program on July 24, 2009. The next site visit for the Ohio Board of Nursing is February 19-20, 2014.
The present 2013 pass rate for NCLEX for Ohio Northern University nursing graduates is 94.74 percent.
