Two Fresno State Nursing Programs Not Accredited: University Seeks To Rectify Problems

Jul 8, 2019

In mid-June, Fresno State announced that one of its nursing programs – the Master’s of Science in Nursing – had lost its accreditation. It’s the first Fresno State program that’s ever had its accreditation withdrawn, but it’s actually the second accreditation-related snafu to hit the university’s nursing school in the past year.

In this interview, FM89 health reporter Kerry Klein explains what’s happened, how the university plans to rectify these two situations, and what it means for the graduates of these programs and the patients of the San Joaquin Valley.
