Clovis Community College's Nursing Department Receives Continuing Accreditation...

The Clovis Community College Nursing Program has earned reaccreditation from the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission. NLNAC is nationally recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as the accrediting agency for postsecondary and higher degree nursing programs. The NLNAC Board of Commissioners granted continuing accreditation to the entire CCC Nursing Program on July 27, 2009, following a self-study report and extensive on-site review by NLNAC evaluators of the program curriculum, practices, and policies. NLNAC has given CCC's program an eight-year accreditation without deficiencies, the highest designation a program can receive.

CCC President Dr. John Neibling said, "Needless to say, we are extremely proud of the CCC Nursing Program. The eight-year extension of its accreditation, with no deficiencies cited, is a tremendous accomplishment for the Dean and the faculty." Dr. Robin Jones, Dean of Allied Health, stated, "We are very excited about our continuing accreditation. The accreditation standards had changed significantly since the site visit in 2001; however, the quality of the program and faculty made the accreditation process a smooth one. Students are very fortunate to attend the Clovis Community College Nursing program. The continuing accreditation supports that fact." Each semester, CCC graduates approximately 40 RN students and 45 LPNs.

Accreditation provides validation that a program has been evaluated by a qualified, independent group of peers. The goal is to substantiate that the institution meets appropriate higher educational standards in a satisfactory manner.
