Nursing program accredited

Harford Community College's associate degree nursing program has been granted continuing accreditation from the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.

Accreditation means that the Harford college meets the commission's standards for nursing education.

Laura Cianelli Putland, college interim dean for Nursing & Allied Health Professions, said the accreditation process took more than a year to complete, from a self-study to a site visit by the accrediting commission and a 25-member evaluation panel.

The commission and its predecessor, the National League for Nursing, have stood for standards of excellence for all types of nursing education for more than 50 years. The U.S. Department of Education has recognized the commission as the national accrediting body for all types of nursing education programs.
