For students registering for Spring 2014 classes, please be aware of the following accreditation status.
On Aug. 9, 2013, Cuyahoga Community College reached an agreement with ACEN regarding the status of its associate degree nursing program accreditation. The decision recognizes the progress Tri-C has made toward full compliance with ACEN standards. A follow-up site visit from ACEN is scheduled to take place in February 2014. Until then, the nursing program is accredited, with warning.
This accreditation status will provide our students with the opportunity to continue to graduate from an accredited program. As has always been the case, graduating students will be eligible to sit for the NCLEX exam.
