Eastern Wyoming College has received official notification from the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) that the application for Candidacy has been granted for the associate degree in nursing program offered at the Douglas Campus.

Candidacy status is based on the nursing program demonstrating it is currently compliant with selected ACEN Standards and Criteria and demonstrating the potential to achieve ACEN accreditation based upon the selected ACEN Standards and Criteria as reviewed in the Candidacy presentation.

EWC will now continue through the process which will include an accreditation site visit and additional reporting requirements.

“This is the best news our EWC Nursing Program could receive at this point,” shared EWC Director of Nursing Suzey Delger.  “We still have the next step for final accreditation and plan to work very hard for this next step so that our students will have the best education available.”

There currently are fourteen students enrolled in the first cohort class offered by the college.
