Third Party Comments for CCNE Accreditation

Dear JCN Community:

The Jefferson College of Nursing will host a virtual accreditation visit by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) from Wednesday, March 17, 2021- Friday, March 19, 2021. Our Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Master of Science in Nursing, Post-Graduate APRN Certificate, and Doctor of Nursing Practice programs will be evaluated for reaccreditation. 

In the CCNE accreditation process, there is an opportunity for program constituents and other interested parties to submit, in writing, comments concerning our programs' qualifications for accreditation. We invite all members of our communities of interest including: students, alumni, faculty, preceptors, employers, clinical partners, community partners, and the community at-large, to provide written input regarding our nursing programs. Your feedback is valuable and appreciated.

Written third-party comments must be in English and received by CCNE by February 24, 2021

We invite you to submit comments to CCNE at

Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education
Attn: Third-Party Comments
655 K Street NW, Suite 750
Washington, DC 20001


Please note that comments are shared only with the CCNE evaluation team appointed to review our programs. At no time during the review process are these comments shared with the program, the Accreditation Review Committee, or the Board.
