An evaluation team from the Accreditation Council for Nursing Education (ACEN) on Tuesday, March 28, started a 3-day onsite visit to the University of Jordan (UJ).
The visit aims to conduct an initial accreditation review of programs offered by the School of Nursing.
The team gave very positive reviews after onsite tours to the School, Main Library and the Admission and Registration Unit, as well as interviewing students and faculty, and attending lectures.
The site visitors visited the Jordanian Nursing Council. They also met with UJ President Prof. Azmi Mahafzah, Vice-president for Scientific and Health Faculties Affairs Prof. Omar Kafawin, Vice-president for Investment, Development and Finance Affairs Prof. Mahmoud Khalielh, and Accreditation and Quality Assurance Center Director Dr. Prof. Faleh Sawair.
The ACEN is the entity that is responsible for the specialized accreditation of nursing education programs, both postsecondary and higher degree which offers a certificate, a diploma, or a recognized professional degree.
UJSoN was established in 1972. It comprises three department; Clinical Nursing, Community Health Nursing, and Maternal and Child Health Nursing departments, and offers both graduate and undergraduate degrees in Nursing.
The School's pursuit of international accreditation comes as part of its effort to accommodate the best education experience and highest standards of academic conduct. The final result will be out during the month of August.
