PORTALES—Eastern New Mexico University's Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Completion Program has received continuing accreditation from the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, Inc. (NLNAC), through the spring of 2015.
"We are very proud of our nursing program," said Steven Gamble, ENMU president. "Our faculty and students are exceptional, and the superior rating we received from the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission is evidence of this. There is a critical shortage of nurses in our country, and we are very pleased that Eastern has a top quality, fully accredited program to help fill this need."
Mary Ayala, dean of ENMU’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, noted that ENMU is the only institution that prepares bachelor's-qualified nurses in eastern New Mexico. “Eastern plays an important role in filling the healthcare needs of our region. We are very lucky to have an extremely dedicated faculty and staff in this program, as well as the NLNAC's seal of approval.”
According to Lorraine Goodrich, instructor of nursing at ENMU, Eastern’s nursing program is designed with the working registered nurse (R.N.) in mind. “Nurses who graduate from the program are prepared for advanced study or for a professional nursing career,” she said.
