Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), a national accreditation agency, this week granted full five-year accreditation to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Globe University/Minnesota School of Business (GU/MSB). CCNE accreditation is a voluntary, self-regulated process that supports excellence, innovation and growth in baccalaureate and post-baccalaureate nursing programs as a means to contribute to the health of the public.
In preparation, the nursing department conducts an extensive self-analysis, and participates in an evaluation team site visit, addressing standards regarding the quality and integrity of the program's educational policies, practices and resources. Globe University/Minnesota School of Business is one of only a few career colleges to earn this accreditation, more commonly associated with private and public liberal arts colleges and universities.
The nursing program at GU/MSB offers distinctive advantages. It is a small program located on an intimate campus. Students form close relationships with instructors, and academic support services, including a full-time nursing tutor, are readily available. An appreciation for cultural diversity and human spirituality is woven throughout the program, which has an emphasis on holistic care in a global environment. Entire courses are devoted to critical issues related to professional practice, health promotion, and end of life care, as well as provision of care in complex healthcare situations. Students integrate the art and science of the professional nursing role through multiple learning environments including simulation experiences on a specially instrumented mannequin, so as they enter practice as registered nurses, they have experiential learning within diverse care situations.
Globe University/Minnesota School of Business, has been providing students in the Upper Midwest with high-quality, practical career training for over 130 years. A core component of the nursing program, like all others at the school, is oversight by professionals and employers in the field. The Nursing Program Advisory Board is a group of dedicated medical professionals who support the program's mission of meeting the needs of the community and an evolving global society.
