ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) — The New Mexico State University-Alamogordo nursing program has been placed on warning status by a national accrediting agency.
NMSU-Alamogordo President Cheri Jimeno told the Alamogordo Daily News (http://bit.ly/WS7lCs) Thursday that the nursing program risks losing accreditation if it does not turn itself around by 2014.
Jimeno says the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission wants the Alamogordo program to have eight or nine faculty with a master's of science and nursing degrees. It currently has five.
She says the program was placed on warning status late last year and is being required to increase its faculty, make changes to its curriculum and improve its pass rate for a nursing exam.
The program is also being asked to tweak its curriculum to reflect national trends in nursing.
