DNP Program Receives Programmatic Accreditation from CCNE

West Coast University is pleased to announce its Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program has been accredited for five years by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). 

WCU DNP program director Pamela Sandvig said the five-year accreditation was an affirmation of WCU’s “long tradition of excellence for quality nursing education.” 

“West Coast University has a history of helping prepare students to excel and the DNP program provides the opportunity for students to further their education and promote personal and professional growth,” Sandvig said. “Our DNP team looks forward to continuous program improvement to stay current and relevant in an ever-changing and dynamic healthcare environment.” 

This milestone accomplishment is official recognition that WCU met all four accreditation standards established by the CCNE Board of Commissioners using the CCNE Standards for Accreditation of Baccalaureate and Graduate Nursing Programs. The national accreditation program works to promote the quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate, and residency/fellowship programs in nursing.
