CLEVELAND (AP) — A nursing program at Cuyahoga Community College is fighting to keep its accreditation.
The Plain Dealer of Cleveland reported Saturday (http://bit.ly/116tADU) that the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission recently voted to deny accreditation for the college's two-year registered nurse program.
The commission said a majority of the RN program's part-time faculty lack master's degrees in nursing and the school hasn't provided evidence that graduates are competently prepared.
Tri-C President Jerry Sue Thornton told the newspaper the dispute is over "meeting the letter of the law on their rules and regs." More than 93 percent of the program's students passed the 2012 state nursing board exam, above the state average.
The program is still state-approved and graduates who pass the state exam can still be licensed.
Enrollment stands at 1,062.
