Vt. nursing program may lose accreditation

Posted: Updated:

BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - After nearly two years on probation, a nursing program at Southern Vermont College could lose its accreditation.

A visiting team from the National League of Nursing Accreditation Commission has told the college it plans to recommend that the commission not renew the school's accreditation for associate's and bachelor's degrees in nursing.

The team had visited the school in October. It has until early December to issues its formal report, and the full commission meets in the spring.

College Acting President James Beckwith tells the Bennington Banner the adoption of a new curriculum two years ago may have led to some confusion. He believes the situation can be fixed.

The college is not expected to lose its approval from the Vermont State Board of Nursing.
