SALINA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas Wesleyan University President Matt Thompson says he is optimistic the school’s nursing program will regain accreditation this fall.

Wesleyan withdrew its accreditation from the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing in March 2015, days before the organization was likely to vote not to continue the nursing program’s accreditation.

The Salina Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1YxOzMf ) the Wesleyan had applied for accreditation to the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, which most nursing programs in Kansas use.

Thompson says representatives of the CCNE and the Kansas State Board of Nursing visited the school in February. He says a preliminary report was positive, with only a few lingering issues.

CCNE is scheduled to vote on Wesleyan’s accreditation in November. Thompson says if it’s approved, the accreditation will apply for this May’s graduates.
