Angelo State nursing department continuing tradition of excellence

Tom Nurre Jr.

Angelo State University has long been known as a leader in nursing education, and that distinction has once again been confirmed by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing.

Earlier this summer, the AACN’s Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) reported that the ASU Department of Nursing has earned re-accreditation following an extensive process that culminated with a campus site visit last fall by CCNE evaluators.

The CCNE officially re-accredited the ASU Department of Nursing for 10 years with no compliance issues. All three of ASU’s nursing education tracks – baccalaureate, master’s and post-master’s – have been re-accredited individually and collectively.

“The extension to 10 years, from the usual five years, is a mark of excellence,” said Dr. Wrennah Gabbert, chair of the ASU Nursing Department. “This designation of ‘no compliance issues’ means we provided all the data and information required to demonstrate we did the hard work in every detail contained within the CCNE accreditation standards. I am proud of the processes we have put into place that we can continue moving forward into our altered academic environment.”
