Nursing Accreditation: CCNE Third Party Comments

Dear SUSON Community,


The School of Nursing at Southern University and A&M College will host an accreditation visit by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) on March 3 – 5, 2021. The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program will be evaluated for re-accreditation.

In accordance with CCNE'S procedures, the Commission provides the opportunity for program constituents and other interested parties to submit, in writing, third-party comments concerning our DNP program’s qualifications for accreditation. Only signed comments are accepted by CCNE.


All comments must be directed to:

Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education

Attn: Third-Party Comments

655 K Street NW, Suite 750

Washington, DC, 20001

Or sent via email to:


Comments must be received by February 10, 2021, which is 21 days prior to the first day of the on-site evaluation.

Third-party comments must relate to the CCNE Standards for Accreditation of Standards for Accreditation of Baccalaureate and Graduate Nursing Programs. All third-party comments must be written in English, consistent with CCNE's policy on Conduct of Business in English.

Please note that CCNE only shares third-party comments with the CCNE evaluation team appointed to review our programs prior to evaluation. At no time during the review process are these comments shared with the program, the Accreditation Review Committee, or the Board.

If you have any questions regarding the third-party comment process or any aspect of the accreditation process, please contact Dr. Daniel S. Michalski, at 202-887-6791 ext. 253 or at
