From the Dean

Dean Brown

Dear Friends,

We've had many exciting developments since our last issue of Pirate Nurse Notes. It's been a busy summer and early fall here at the college!

I'm pleased to share that we have received 10 years of accreditation, the maximum granted by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. The outcome is a real testament to the excellence of our programs, and I'm so thankful to each and every member of our organization for their involvement. It was a true team effort to make our accreditation process such a success.
