NURSING PROGRAM EARNS
Trinity's nursing department
received more validation for the quality of its curriculum and instruction
when the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education granted a 10-year accreditation
of the baccalaureate degree program. The CCNE Board of Commissioners determined
that the College met all four standards for accreditation with no compliance
"This accreditation affirms
that we have a high-caliber program that meets national standards of excellence,"
said department chair Cynthia Sander.
Another sign of the department's
prowess is the success rate of graduates who apply for their licenses.
Each member of the class of 2001 passed the national nursing licensure
exam on the first attempt, and the class of 2002 repeated that accomplishment.
"A 100 percent first-time
pass rate is a major achievement; to attain this for two successive years
is unusual," Sander said. "It speaks to the quality of our students, our
faculty, and our curriculum."
