Tallahassee, FL. – Florida A&M University’s (FAMU) School of Nursing received notification from the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) that the School of Nursing was in compliance with all accreditation standards and criteria regarding a recent complaint made by a student.
This fall, a student submitted a complaint against the FAMU School of Nursing regarding its nursing programs. Among the allegations were the department’s academic policy, discriminatory practices and comprehensive exam.
According to Dr. Sharon J. Tanner, executive director of NLNAC, NLNAC must review each complaint it receives in accordance with its policies as required by the U.S. Department of Education Regulations related to student concerns.
“The materials submitted were carefully reviewed,” said Tanner. “Based on the complainants’ concerns, it appears that you [FAMU’s School of Nursing] are in compliance with NLNAC Standards and Criteria.”
“I was confident that the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission would find our program in compliance with all accreditation standards and criteria,” said Mary Graham, dean of FAMU’s School of Nursing. “I will continue to give 100 percent in my role as dean. The faculty and I believe in excellence and the success of our students.”
The National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as the national accrediting body for all types of nursing education programs.
