CSU School of Nursing BSN and MSN Programs Earn Maximum Accreditation from CCNE

Following a rigorous evaluation, the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) has granted continuing accreditation to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) programs and the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) programs at Cleveland State University’s School of Nursing.

These programs have been reaccredited for the maximum 10-year period, extending accreditation through 2025.

The BSN degree, initially accredited in 2005, offers the following tracks:

  • Basic BSN
  • Accelerated Option
  • RN to BSN

The MSN degree, initially accredited in 2002 and delivered primarily online (with the exception of practicum experiences), offers the following tracks:

  • Specialized Population
  • Forensic Nursing
  • Clinical Nurse Leader
  • Nursing Education
  • MSN/MBA (with CSU’s Monte Ahuja College of Business)

Officially recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education, CCNE is an autonomous accrediting agency that seeks to ensure the quality and integrity of nursing programs by identifying those that engage in effective educational practices.

The continuing CCNE accreditation for the CSU School of Nursing comes on the heels of full approval through 2020 from the Ohio Board of Nursing for the school’s pre-licensure curriculum.
