Frontier Nursing University (FNU) has been granted continued accreditation from the Board of Commissioners of the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). The university’s master of science in nursing and post-graduate certificate nursing programs are included in the continued accreditation approval, as well as the newly implemented psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner specialty track.

Dr. Joan Slager, FNU interim dean, tells, “The ACEN Board of Commissioners commended FNU’s commitment to quality nursing education. They noted strengths such as administrative and financial support available to faculty for evidence-based clinical and teaching practices, as well as our consistent national certification exam pass rates.”

The accreditation covers the master of science in nursing and post-graduate certificate programs through 2025, including nurse-midwifery, family nurse practitioner, women’s health care nurse practitioner, and the new psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner program. FNU’s doctor of nursing practice (DNP) program is on a different accreditation cycle and is accredited through 2019.

ACEN supports nursing education, nursing practice, and the public through the functions of accreditation. To learn more about the continued accreditation of Frontier Nursing University’s programs, visit here.
