Baker’s School of Nursing, established in 1991, is reaccredited until Dec. 31, 2021.  Like other nursing schools, Baker in five years will be required to submit a mid-term continuous improvement progress report.

“This is the culmination of a three-year self-study process and signifies that the school has met the standards set by CCNE for all baccalaureate nursing programs,” said Kathleen Harr, vice president and dean of Baker’s School of Nursing. “Baker meets the same standards as other programs in terms of quality. The accreditation also allows our graduates to be eligible for military service and graduate school.”

Baker’s School of Nursing, which has been accredited since 1991, is located at the Pozez Education Center at Stormont-Vail HealthCare in Topeka.
