MONROE, Mich., July 11, 2022: Monroe County Community College’s Associate of Applied Science in Nursing program has been granted continuing accreditation for another eight years from the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing Board of Commissioners following a recent site visit.

According to Dr. Kim Lindquist, dean of the Health Sciences Division and director of the nursing programs at MCCC, “As the program administrator I am thrilled to share that the associate of applied science nursing program, representing the RN and PN to RN options, has been granted continuing accreditation without any areas needing development”

“This recommendation speaks to the commitment of the nursing faculty and staff who put forward a curriculum that meets the highest of standards and who continue to work collaboratively to provide high quality instruction to nursing students at MCCC, benefiting not only our students, but the entire Monroe community and beyond,” added Lindquist.

In addition, MCCC’s Practical Nursing Program was recently notified that it has been accepted as a candidate for initial accreditation by the ACEN. “The accreditation process that we have begun for the PN program is the same that was followed for the AAS-Nursing/RN program,” said Lindquist. “The process is very rigorous and speaks to the high quality of our program and training the students receive.”
