A Center of Excellence in Nursing Education

In October 2004, the College of Nursing was designated a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education by the National League for Nursing—one of only three in the country to be so named. The College was granted the designation in its category "Creating Environments That Enhance Student Learning and Professional Development." The designation is separate from accreditation and identifies schools of exceptional quality. The College once again received the designation in 2013. In 2010, the College was designated a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education in a new category “Creating Environments That Advance the Science of Nursing Education.”
