Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education

The baccalaureate degree in nursing program at Presentation College is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

655 K Street, NW, Suite 750, Washington, DC 20001


CCNE has informed Presentation College that the expiration date of the accreditation term of the institution’s baccalaureate degree program in nursing was adjusted by the CCNE Board of Commissioners at its September 22-25, 2020 meeting. Specifically, the Board adjusted the original expiration date of December 31, 2020 so that it is now December 31, 2021. Such action is intended to help protect students enrolled in the program in light of the fact that the CCNE evaluation was postponed from Spring 2020 to Spring 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Board’s accreditation decision-making meeting regarding the Spring 2021 evaluation will be held in Fall 2021, prior to the adjusted accreditation term expiration date.
