Dean of Nursing Selected as Evaluator for Prestigious Training Program


JSU Dean of Nursing, Dr. Christie Shelton, has been selected to attend the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) training program for prospective on-site evaluators on March 7-8, 2016, in Reston, Virginia. Shelton was selected from a rigorous review of over 400 applicants.

"I am very excited about being selected as a CCNE site visitor,” stated Shelton.

“I feel certain this opportunity will expand my knowledge in relation to accreditation as I am exposed to various nursing programs and colleagues across the nation. I look forward to serving in this capacity."

Jacksonville State University is proud of Dr. Shelton and congratulates her on this accomplishment. 

In addition to this good news, the JSU College of Nursing has been reaccredited through 2025 by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, a national accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education that ensures the quality and integrity of nursing programs across the country.

JSU’s College of Nursing offers students the opportunity to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing or one of three Master of Science in Nursing programs specializing in community health nursing, community health with a concentration in nursing education, or community health with a concentration in emergency management. The college also offers a completely online RSN-to-BSN program and graduate certificates in nursing education and emergency preparedness nursing coordination. The state recently approved a new Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Therapy program in the college, which is currently admitting students for a 2017 expected start date.
