Mercy College of Ohio’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) have been granted accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). An autonomous accrediting agency, CCNE contributes to the improvement of the public's health by ensuring the quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate, and residency programs in nursing. The CCNE Board of Commissioners determined that all four accreditation standards were met with no compliance concerns with respect to the key elements for both the BSN and MSN programs.

CCNE granted Mercy College’s BSN program ten-year continuing accreditation, the maximum for an existing program, while the MSN was granted initial five-year accreditation, the maximum for a new program.

Mercy College President, Sue Wajert, PhD said, “I’m delighted that both our BSN and MSN programs received CCNE accreditation recognizing the quality of our instruction. I’m very grateful to the nursing division faculty who worked diligently to achieve this. I’d like to especially thank Dean of Nursing, Dr. Elizabeth Sprunk, for her ongoing efforts and leadership.”
