Fetterman School of Nursing Receives CCNE Accreditation

Toccoa Falls College is excited to announce the baccalaureate degree program in nursing is now accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org ).  This means the CCNE board determined during its recent on-site evaluation that the program met all four accreditation standards and there were no compliance concerns with respect to the key elements.

Fetterman School of Nursing Dean, Deborah Alvater commented on the accreditation stating, “The Fetterman School of Nursing is excited and proud to have been granted accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.  This is a distinguished accomplishment.  When nursing students graduate from an accredited program their degree carries credibility, legitimacy, and professional benefits.  Specifically, this accreditation ensures that nursing school programs are held to high- quality, nationally-recognized standards, and promotes excellence in areas such as the curriculum, course content, program quality, performance outcomes, and faculty qualifications.  Accreditation is important for our graduate’s career goals in pursuing advanced degrees, being competitive in the job market, and being eligible for state and federal financial aid programs.  Toccoa Falls College looks forward to continued growth in academic excellence in the Fetterman School of Nursing.”

The Fetterman School of Nursing opened its doors in August 2017 and this May graduated its inaugural class.
