Alcorn State Nursing Placed on Accreditation Warning

Four Mississippi universities and community colleges have been told to make improvements to their nursing programs.

The College Board earlier this month granted accreditation renewals in nursing instruction at 23 universities and community colleges.

Alcorn State University was placed on warning, with board documents stating the school’s three-year passing rate on the national exam for its two-year program was 58 percent, below the required 80 percent. The pass rate improved to 88 percent in 2016.
