Abilene Christian University’s Online Doctor of Nursing Practice Program Receives Widely Recognized Accreditation

The Doctor of Nursing Practice program at Abilene Christian University (ACU) has received accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education ( This accreditation is given to schools who demonstrate a quality and rigorous curriculum according to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) essentials for DNP education.

“We are honored to receive this recognition,” says Dr. Tonya Sawyer-McGee, Program Director and Associate Professor of the DNP program at ACU. “This distinction signifies that our DNP program delivers a curriculum based on integrity and quality so that graduates from the program can become change agents in health policy and practice.”

Earning programmatic accreditation takes a considerable amount of time and effort on the part of the university. Nursing students who choose schools that have received CCNE accreditation should take pride that their school is held to such high standards.

"We are pleased to see this confirmation of our nursing programs through this national recognition,” says Dr. Phil Schubert, President of Abilene Christian University. “Having CCNE accreditation for both our B.S. in Nursing and our Doctor of Nursing Practice programs is an important statement to our students and their future employers about the quality of our programs and our faculty. Congratulations to the ACU School of Nursing on this outstanding achievement.”
