CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) - The registered nursing program at River Valley Community College has been reaccredited for a period of five years after it was stripped of its certification in August 2013.

Pat Shinn, the school’s nursing department chairwoman, tells The Valley News (https://bit.ly/2at1izJ ) that the accreditation also covers students from the Claremont and Keene campuses who graduated this spring with an associate’s degree in nursing.

Marcy Stoll, chief executive officer of the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, says the initial accreditation offered to River Valley means their program is “in compliance with all ACEN accreditation standards.”

River Valley lost its accreditation after it was cited for noncompliance on two standards - curriculum and outcomes.

Shinn says school officials were committed to making the necessary improvements to restore the program.
