Cahattahoochee Valley loses nursing accreditation

PHENIX CITY, Ala. (AP) - Chattahoochee Valley Community College has lost the accreditation for its nursing program.

College president Laurel Blackwell notified the Alabama Community College System of the action this week.

The National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission withdrew accreditation because too few of the program's faculty had master's degrees and there was not an acceptable evaluation plan to determine outcomes for the students.

There were 116 students enrolled in the Phenix City-based college's nursing program. College officials say they are working to ensure that they are able to graduate from a fully accredited program.

Interim Chancellor Joan Davis said those students might be sent to any of the system's 19 other accredited nursing programs.
