Nursing Program Passes Review by NLNAC Visitation Team
Following an intensive two-day review, the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) visitation team determined that South Florida State College’s Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program complies with all NLNAC standards for accreditation.
The program expects to receive this accreditation in July. First, the NLNAC visitation team will submit its preliminary report to NLNAC’s Evaluation Review Panel. In June, that panel will vote to recommend that the NLNAC Board of Commissioners grant the accreditation when it convenes in July.
Dr. Michele Heston, director, Nursing Education, said the visitation team was impressed with the quality of education offered through the SFSC ADN program and with the college in general. “They commended every aspect of SFSC and at every level, from maintenance to student services, and for the work we are doing in our community,” Dr. Heston said.
The NLNAC visitation team consisted of three nursing educators employed at colleges in Alabama, Indiana, and Kentucky.
“Dr. Michele Heston deserves extraordinary credit for her efforts in this accreditation process, but she had a strong team of faculty and staff helping her,” Dr. Norman L. Stephens Jr., SFSC president, said. “This is another proud moment for all of us at SFSC.”
