PORTALES—Eastern New Mexico University's Nursing Program has received a positive re-accreditation site visit review from the National League of Nursing Accrediting Commission. The Commission visited Eastern from Feb. 27 through March 1.
Although the final details of the recommendation will not be confirmed until the national evaluation process is completed later this year, the site visitors have recommended full re-accreditation for ENMU-Portales, with the next visit to be scheduled in eight years.
This is the maximum time-period allowed and it is a reflection of the affirmative findings in their report.
The Eastern administration extended its gratitude to: Lorraine Goodrich, interim director of the Nursing Program; Dr. Suzanne Swift, chair of ENMU's Health and Human Services; Jane Batson, consultant from Roswell; the program's faculty and students; Eastern's regional partners in healthcare; and all of the members of the community who have supported the Nursing Program.
