TCC’s Nursing Program receives national accreditation

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (April 24, 2013) - Tallahassee Community College’s Nursing Program has taken another step towards maintaining its spot as one of the nation’s elite.

The College recently announced that its Associate degree Nursing Program is now accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, Inc. (NLNAC).

According to Dr. Alice Nied, Dean of Healthcare Professions, becoming accredited by the NLNAC was strictly an internal initiative.

“It was a voluntary activity,” explained Nied, “but it opens so many additional opportunities for our students.”

With the NLNAC accreditation, TCC has access to a new pool of grants and has also expanded its reach with potential job opportunities for students.

“Some employers prefer to hire graduates of nationally-accredited programs,” Nied added.

During the rigorous accreditation process, the NLNAC evaluated six standards including the program’s mission and administrative capacity, the credentials of faculty and staff, facilities and other resources, and polices and services that support the students, curriculum, and learning outcomes.

Nied applauded the College’s administration for supporting the program’s desire to gain national accreditation. 

“They want us to be the best and are willing to support us in whatever it takes to reach that goal,” she added. 

“Having the NLNAC accreditation adds to our well-earned reputation for an excellent program that graduates highly trained and knowledgeable nurses.”

Graduates of TCC’s Nursing Program traditionally achieve a state board passing rate that surpasses both the state and national rates. In 2012, 72 of 73 (98.6%) graduates passed the licensure exam on the first attempt – higher than state (87.3%) and national (90.9%) levels.

This achievement, coupled with the College’s new accreditation, will help TCC maintain its status as a first choice among prospective students. Those interested in pursuing a TCC nursing degree or other healthcare profession degree should visit www.tcc.fl.edu/HealthCareApplication and apply by May 6 for the fall program.
