June 10, 2020



Curry College announced today that its baccalaureate and graduate degree programs in nursing have been granted reaccreditation through the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) through 2030.

“Curry College was the first Nursing program in the State of Massachusetts to be accredited by the CCNE,” says Dr. Desirée Hensel, Dean, School of Nursing. “Continuing accreditation signifies that our program has consistently engaged in high-quality, effective educational practices. We owe the success of our program to the commitment, compassion, and creativity of our faculty, staff, administrators, partners, and students.”

As part of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, the CCNE is a national agency that accredits nursing education programs to ensure each meets strict curriculum standards and up-to-date professional practices. By evaluating all aspects of their academic program, CCNE-accredited institutions are among the highest caliber of nursing schools in the country.

“The CCNE accreditation is a stamp of approval of the highest regard in nursing education,” says Curry College Provost David Szczerbacki. “This external validation affirms what we already knew of our School of Nursing: we have a first-class, high-quality program of which we are tremendously proud. We look forward to continuing our commitment to excellence and help prepare the next generation of leading nurses.”
