The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) invites comments

on its Standards for Accreditation of Baccalaureate and Graduate Nursing Programs (October 2003). All are invited to suggest changes, including university and program administrators; faculty; practitioners; representatives of regulatory, certification, accreditation, state and federal agencies; students; alumni; employers of nurses; and others with an interest in the preparation of competent nurses. The entire standards document is available for review at

A revision to the standards is needed to accommodate the review of Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs as well as baccalaureate and master's degree nursing programs.
