WKU’s Doctor of Nursing Practice Program Earns Accreditation

wku red blackBOWLING GREEN, Ky. (11/28/13) - The Doctor of Nursing Practice program at WKU has been accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

The CCNE’s Board of Commissioners approved the five-year accreditation through Dec. 31, 2018. WKU’s DNP program met all four accreditation standards and the board found no compliance concerns with the key elements, Board Chair Linda Caldwell wrote in her accreditation letter.

“Accreditation by the CCNE of the DNP is an indicator of the high quality of WKU’s clinical program for nurse practitioners,” said John Bonaguro, Dean of the College of Health and Human Services. “The accreditation self-study, the site visit by representatives of CCNE, and the final approval by the CCNE Board signify that the DNP program fully meets the criteria for accreditation without any compliance or deficiencies issues.”

Mary Bennett, Director of the School of Nursing, said 57 students are currently enrolled in the program with 10 set to graduate in May 2014. She said those students are completing scholarly projects.

“The DNP program prepares graduates for advanced roles that demonstrate excellence in practice related to improved health care outcomes, evaluation and dissemination of evidence based practice, information systems and technology, leadership, and inter-professional collaboration,” Dr. Bennett said.

Dr. Bonaguro added that having full accreditation “means our educational standards are preparing at the highest level of clinical practices for nurse practitioners.”
