American University of Health Sciences has been reaccredited for another ten years by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

CCNE is one of two major organizations that offers accreditation to nursing programs and is affiliated with American Association of Colleges of Nursing. In granting accreditation to the nursing program at AUHS, CCNE has found the program to meet and exceed its accreditation standards which include a host of rigorous evaluations meant to show that a nursing program is fully capable of producing highly educated and well-prepared nurses whose service will be a benefit to the public health.

“We are proud to have received this reaccreditation from the CCNE,” said AUHS president and CEO Dr. Caroll Ryan, “Giving students the education they need to excel in the public health field is one of our primary goals at AUHS, and receiving reaccreditation from the CCNE demonstrates that this is a goal that AUHS is well-equipped to meet. I look forward to the next ten years of this university offering to students the value that accreditation from the CCNE offers, and we look forward to continuing to be a part of the CCNE community for many years after that.”

The university offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), a Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences (BSPS), and a Master of Science in Clinical Research (MSCR) and has plans to add additional degree and certificate programs in the future.
