Binghamton University Decker School of Nursing’s baccalaureate, master’s, doctor of nursing and post-graduate advanced-practice registered nurse certificate programs have been granted a 10-year re-accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). This is the longest period of time for which the CCNE grants accreditation for nursing programs and reflects CCNE’s satisfaction and confidence that the Decker School of Nursing is meeting and will continue to meet its standards for nursing education.


During the accreditation process, CCNE visitors examined the quality and integrity of the nursing programs at the Decker School. All standards were met with no compliance concerns.


CCNE, recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education, is a national accreditation agency. CCNE accreditation ensures the quality and integrity of baccalaureate- and graduate-level nursing programs. The  accreditation process focuses on program quality, mission and governance, resources, curriculum and program outcomes.


Decker School of Nursing accreditation is effective through June 2029.
