Forest City, IA – June 6, 2023 – Waldorf University is proud to announce our RN to BSN program has been granted accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). This prestigious accreditation highlights our program's full commitment to excellence in nursing education as well as our dedication to offering high-quality academic experiences for our online BSN students. This accreditation is a testament to the leadership of Dr. Tara Nichols, the RN to BSN Program Director, and the committed faculty and staff who worked hard to ensure the program's successful accreditation.

The CCNE accreditation is a rigorous and comprehensive evaluation process that assesses the quality and ongoing process improvement efforts of nursing programs. It validates Waldorf University's RN to BSN program meets or exceeds the professional standards set by the CCNE and demonstrates its commitment to producing highly skilled and competent nursing graduates. Waldorf University’s development of the RN to BSN completion program began in 2018, to help fill a critical need of BSNs throughout the country. Our goal was simple: to foster a supportive learning environment that prepares culturally competent nurses to lead and educate in a diverse and complex world. Throughout this journey, Waldorf and the program have hit several milestones, all culminating to this prestigious accreditation.

Dr. Tara Nichols played a pivotal role in the achievement of this accreditation. Her leadership, dedication, and expertise in nursing have been instrumental in shaping the program's curriculum and ensuring its alignment with the highest standards of nursing education. Under Dr. Nichols' guidance, the program has evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of the nursing profession, preparing students to excel in their nursing careers and make a positive impact in the communities where they work, live, and play.
