We just learned this week that the R.N. to B.S. Nursing Program at SUNY Empire State College has received a full five year accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

We extend our congratulations to Associate Dean Rosann Urso, and all of our nursing faculty, including Kimberly Balko, Mara Kaufmann, Mary Guadron, Rebecca Hegel, and Teresa Smith, as well as Catherine Hoff, Erin White, and JoAnne Christensen.

As I stated in an email to the entire CDL community, this is an impressive achievement that reflects well on the innovative and dedicated work this team has accomplished over the past few years. CCNE is the top accrediting institution in the field of Nursing and to receive a full five years is a distinctive honor.
