SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — A northeastern Pennsylvania university that lost accreditation for its nursing program is looking into options to help current students in the program.
The Times-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/17Wf0mv ) Marywood University in Scranton is exploring agreements with other schools. Marywood learned earlier this month that the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission denied continuing accreditation to its nursing program.
Marywood hasn’t described the reasons for the lost accreditation and says it’s appealing. Spokeswoman Juneann Greco says Marywood is reviewing the program and its curriculum and is confident the school will regain its accreditation.
In an email sent to juniors, school officials say they are exploring agreements that could allow juniors in good standing to study under a partner institution and graduate from an accredited nursing program.
