Associate Degree Nursing Program Receives Maximum NLNAC Reaccreditation

CONTACT:  JANET FULLER, 646-1343

     PENDLETON --- Tri-County Technical College's Associate Degree Nursing program received an unrestricted, continued eight-year accreditation by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC).  This is the highest recommendation a program can receive from the accrediting body.

     The National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as the national accrediting body for all types of nursing education programs.

     Accreditation is a voluntary, self-regulatory process by which non-governmental associations recognize educational institutions or programs that have been found to meet or exceed standards and criteria for educational quality.

         Nursing Department Head Janet Fuller says the department submitted a self-study last year and it was followed by a three-day site visit from program evaluators last September.  "We were reviewed by the NLNAC Commission, and they accepted our report and gave us an unrestricted continued accreditation for eight years," she said. 

         "Accreditation shows that we are meeting the national standard. It also means that students can continue their education in baccalaureate-level programs," she said.

      In their report, evaluators commended the program strengths which include a faculty who is committed to excellence, a supportive administration, a strong curriculum, pass rates on board exams and the diversity of clinical sites (hospitals in the tri-county area).

     "I am very appreciative of the extra work from our faculty during the self study and our supportive administration," said Fuller. 

     The department is approved by the State Board of Nursing for SC.
