Third-Party Comments for Current Accreditation Reviews

CCNE provides the opportunity for program constituents and other interested parties to submit, in writing, comments concerning a program's qualifications for accreditation. At least 2 months before the scheduled onsite evaluation, the program notifies its constituents, including, at a minimum, faculty teaching in and students enrolled in the program(s) under review, that an accreditation review is scheduled; this notification should indicate that written third-party comments will be received by CCNE until 21 days before the scheduled on-site evaluation. The form of such notice is at the discretion of the program, but it must include the name of CCNE and instructions for submitting comments to CCNE. The program submits to CCNE, at the same time it submits the self-study document, evidence that its constituents were informed of the opportunity to submit third-party comments to CCNE, in accordance with CCNE policy.

Comments (if interested) on the DNP, MSN, or Post Masters Certificate programs must be submitted to CCNE prior to Aug 21, 2023 for this review cycle.

If you would like to submit a third-party comment for a program currently under review, please submit to thirdpartycomments@ccneaccreditation.org.

Or, if you prefer, mail comments to:
