The Southern California CSU DNP Consortium, which includes the Schools of Nursing at California State University, Fullerton, Long Beach and Los Angeles, will be hosting a Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) accreditation site visit October 15-17, 2018.  This visit is part of the process for seeking continuing nursing professional accreditation through CCNE for the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program. CCNE is an autonomous accrediting agency, which ensures the quality and integrity of professional nursing programs.  As a voluntary, self-regulatory process, CCNE accreditation supports and encourages continuing self-assessment by nursing programs and supports continuing growth and improvement of collegiate professional nursing education.

CCNE requires that our community of interest be offered the opportunity to submit written third-party comments to CCNE up to 21 days prior to the site visit.  These comments are not shared with the nursing program.

All third-party comments should be received by CCNE by  September 24, 2018. All third-party comments submitted to CCNE must be written in English, consistent with CCNE's policy on Conduct of Business in English.
Please submit comments directly to:
