Dear Nursing Students, Faculty and Advisory Council:

It’s an exciting time for the School of Nursing! In the next few months, MCPHS is seeking Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) programmatic reaccreditation of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program.

MCPHS School of Nursing (SON) continually looks to meet the accreditation standards of the nursing industry as well as the current expectations of employers. Through reaccreditation of our program by CCNE, we can affirm that MCPHS nursing curriculum, teaching practices, and program outcomes meet a set of rigorous standards for quality, effective nursing education.

We will be hosting a CCNE evaluation team for an accreditation review on March 15-17, 2021. Prior to the visit, program constituents (including students, faculty, representatives from the nursing community, and the public) are invited to submit comments about the qualifications of the BSN program for CCNE accreditation status. The comments should be sent directly to CCNE, and they will not be shared with the SON.

During its review of our BSN program, the evaluation team will consider third-party comments that relate to the CCNE accreditation standards.All written and signed comments should be sent to CCNE by February 21, 2021. The comments can be emailed to or mailed to:

Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education
Attn: Third-Party Comments
655 K Street, NW, Suite 750
Washington, DC 20001

I appreciate any comments or insight you’d like to share about the MCPHS BSN program.

Dr. Tammy Gravel
Interim Dean of Nursing
