Nursing Accreditation

Baccalaureate Registered Nurse Program at Malaspina University-College and North Island College

This program was reviewed by the Education Program Review Committee of the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia (CRNBC) and this committee submitted its report in January, 2008.

In the report, the Committee stated “The CRNBC Education Program and Course Review Policy Document (2007) guided the program review and recommendations. Policy Four about the frequency of reviews requires that every recognized nursing education program be reviewed at least once every five years unless directed otherwise by the Board. Consistent with this, Policy 14 about Board decisions provides for the Board to recognize a program for a period no longer than five years. Based on consistently positive evidence from multiple sources about the curriculum, students and program evaluation processes at MU-C, and at NIC with MU-C as the degree granting partner, the EPRC recommended the maximum length of recognition provided for in Board policy for the program offered by both institutions. A full program review with a site visit to MU-C and NIC is scheduled to be held for the fall of 2012.”
