Nursing Program Accreditation
Judson College applied for accreditation with the National League of Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) in fall 2011.
The accreditation handbook notes, "When the NLNAC Commission grants accreditation to a program, all students who graduated during or after the accreditation cycle during which the visit was performed will be recognized as graduates of an accredited nursing program."
The Alabama Board of Nursing in Montgomery gave
provisional approval to the Judson College nursing program on November 17, 2011.
Provisional approval is the initial status granted by the Alabama Board of
Nursing to a new nursing education program.
The NLNAC requires programs to meet six standards with regard to Associate programs. Similar standards apply to Bachelor's programs.
These standards include such things as the mission of the program correlating to that of the mission of the institution, the addition of qualified faculty and staff, the curriculum, resources for the program available to students and outcomes or evaluation of the program. The accreditation process could take anywhere from 2-3 years to complete.
The college plans to work toward the addition of a bachelor's level degree in the future.
