LOUISVILLE, Ky. (March 13, 2012) —
The Daymar College Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing (RN-BSN) program has been notified by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) of qualification for candidacy for accreditation. The achievement marks continued progress toward accreditation for Daymar’s RN-BSN program, which is currently offered by the college’s Online campus.
“This is a major step toward achieving NLNAC accreditation,” said Debbie Long, director of nursing education for Daymar’s Online campus. “It signifies that the high standards we’ve set for the program have been recognized by the NLNAC as evidence that we’re eligible to move forward in the accreditation process.”
She added, “We’ve taken great care to build a strong program, taught by qualified faculty.”
Daymar’s RN to BSN program is designed for registered nurses who are already licensed and working in the healthcare field. It builds upon registered nurses’ existing skill sets, providing the knowledge and education they need to advance in the profession. The online program is designed to meet the needs of working nurses who want to take their qualifications to the next level. Currently, only students from Kentucky can be accepted into the program.
The NLNAC’s accreditation process requires schools to meet a variety of strict requirements and graduate their first class of RN-BSN students before accreditation is granted. High levels of opportunity for student learning and achievement are emphasized.
Long added, “This is exciting news for Daymar’s RN-BSN program, and it’s great news for registered nurses who may be looking to move forward in their careers.”
