Program Accreditation & Approval

Public Notice of CCNE Accreditation Visit and Invitation for Third-Party Comments

Tarleton State University’s nursing program will host an accreditation visit by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) from November 15-17, 2023. This visit seeks continuation of its CCNE accreditation for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program.

As required by the CCNE procedures, at least two months before the scheduled evaluation, Tarleton State University must notify its constituents, including, at a minimum, faculty teaching and students enrolled in the program(s) under review, that an accreditation review is scheduled. CCNE will receive third–party comments until 21 days before the scheduled evaluation, which is October 25, 2023.

Under CCNE’s procedures, the Commission provides the opportunity for program constituents and other interested parties to submit, in writing, third–party comments concerning a program’s qualifications for accreditation. All third–party comments submitted to CCNE must be written in English, consistent with CCNE’s policy on Conduct of Business in English.
Direct all comments to [email protected].

CCNE shares third-party comments with members of the evaluation team before the visit, but at no time during the review process are these comments shared with the program. During its review of the program, the evaluation team considers third-party comments related to the accreditation standards.


The baccalaureate degree program in nursing/master’s degree program in nursing/ at Tarleton State University is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).
