Fayetteville, N.C. (November 01, 2022) — Fayetteville State University’s (FSU) School of Nursing recently received accreditation for the new Masters of Science in Nursing: Patient Safety and Quality Program from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

The CCNE is an autonomous accrediting agency contributing to the improvement of the public's health by striving to promote the quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate, and residency/fellowship programs in nursing.

FSU’s Master of Science in Nursing: Patient Safety and Quality degree is the first of its kind in North Carolina. It gives students an in-depth understanding of current issues affecting healthcare, principles of patient safety, types of healthcare errors and the associated effects on patient outcomes. Graduates will be prepared to lead safety and quality care initiatives with mastery of concepts in safety culture, regulations and compliance, legal issues, and system designs like LEAN and Six Sigma.

“FSU’s School of Nursing is proud to offer this program, and to be the first in the state to do so,” said Sheila Cannon, Ph.D., associate dean for the School of Nursing. “We are training the future leaders in nursing, and this accreditation is further proof that we are fulfilling a need in our community.”

The CCNE accreditation period for FSU’s program is February 23, 2022 to December 31, 2027.
