Nursing Program Accreditation and Approval

The Board of Commissioners of the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN) has reaffirmed full accreditation status for Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program following a site review of the program in 2014.

The actions of ACEN further validates the academic standing of our nursing program and supports the changes that have been made to further strengthen the program.  Each member of the nursing faculty has successfully met the challenges of assuring the curriculum and clinical experiences meet the needs of the professional marketplace.

Patterns of strength noted by the evaluators included affordability and accessibility through distance learning technology, strong library facilities with state-of-the-art on-line services, articulate and mature students who are committed to the program, strong community commitment and support, and evidenced support of the Northwestern administration for the program, faculty and students.

The BSN-to-DNP Nursing Program will be submitted for national accreditation after the first year of courses have been completed as required by the national accreditation agencies.

The Northwestern Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree Program is approved by the Oklahoma Board of Nursing. The BSN-to DNP Nursing Program for the preparation of Family Nurse Practitioners has received provisional approval of the Oklahoma Board of Nursing.
