Accreditation

UPDATE

Candidacy is now an accredited status for the first cohort of students only. Regardless of the full accreditation decision made by CAPTE, the first cohort will have graduated from an accredited program and will be able to sit for the licensure exam. Pending a favorable Candidacy decision, the program will apply for full accreditation in Fall 2023 with a decision made in Spring 2024.
