All invited to Nursing meeting

The Lee College Nursing Division will host a site review this month for continuing accreditation of its Associate Degree Nursing program, and members of the public are invited to meet with the team from the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) during their visit to campus.

The ACEN is the national agency responsible for ensuring that nursing education programs meet and properly apply standards and criteria for educational quality. Programs that successfully earn accreditation have shown they have clear and appropriate objectives they are working to achieve on behalf of the students and communities they serve. The Associate Degree Nursing program at Lee College has held ACEN accreditation since 1986, and was last re-evaluated by the agency in 2010.

ACEN site visitors will meet with the public at 3:30 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 30, in Room E-06 of the McNulty-Haddick Building on campus.

Those interested in sharing comments with the ACEN team can also submit them in writing to Dr. Marsal Stoll, Chief Executive Officer, via email to mstoll@acenursing.org, or postal mail to 3343 Peachetree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, GA 30326. All written comments must be received by Sunday, Sept. 20.

For more information about the ACEN site visit or continuing accreditation of the Associate Degree Nursing Program at Lee College, contact Tracy Allen, Director of Nursing, at 281.425.6541.
