MIDWAY, Ky. (Sept. 29, 2016) — Midway University recently received notification that its baccalaureate nursing program has been granted continuing accreditation through 2024. The decision, following a visit from the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), was based on several factors, including the institution’s ability to meet the standards for a quality program and to prepare graduates to enter the job market.
In its findings, ACEN cited Dr. Barbara Kitchen, Dean of Midway’s School of Health Sciences, as a strength of the school’s program. The commission noted that, “The experience of the nurse administrator and respect that college administrators and faculty campus-wide expressed for her are reflective of her commitment to quality and excellence, which has resulted in a culture of faculty availability and service to students.”
Midway’s baccalaureate (RN-BSN) program is designed to provide registered nurses and ADN graduates a seamless transition into more advanced course work. The curriculum combines general education courses with professional nursing theory, complex critical thinking and limited practicum experiences.
