Lorain County Community College’s Nursing program has received the highest accreditation rating from the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
“This means that LCCC has successfully met all six accreditation standards,” said Hope Moon, LCCC interim dean of Allied Health and Nursing. “We work diligently to assure that our program meets or exceeds accreditation standards that all associate degree nursing programs are held to by ACEN.”
The accreditation process included a site visit in September and a self-study submitted in August 2014. The current accreditation will last eight years and another evaluation of the program has been scheduled for the fall of 2022.
The accreditation covers the associate of nursing program offered at the LCCC campus in Elyria as well as LCCC’s program at the Medina County University Center and its joint program offered at Bowling Green State University Firelands College.
“This accreditation is a great indication to our students of the high quality of training and preparation they receive to begin their careers as nurses. The staff at LCCC, MCUC and BGSU combine to provide an outstanding learning experience for students in our area,” Moon said.
