CSUMB nursing earns accreditation

California State University Monterey Bay’s  Bachelor of Science in Nursing has been accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. It is the first accredited program in the Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Cruz area.

“Achieving this accreditation is an important milestone for our nursing program. Our community needs well-trained nurses and by working with our community college partners and local health care institutions, CSUMB has developed a cost-effective program focused on meeting that need,” said in a statement CSUMB President, Eduardo Ochoa. “The students who have enrolled in this program have been outstanding, and will make major contributions to our community for years to come.”

Through partnerships and pathway programs with local community colleges, this accredidation will help address a critical healthcare gap in the region.
