Notre Dame of Maryland University’s baccalaureate and master’s degree in nursing programs recently received full accreditation through 2032 by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), recognizing their excellence in preparing nurses for the profession. Full program accreditation indicates the School of Nursing meets the standards for nursing education through a peer-review process to enhance quality improvement.
“The School of Nursing has a long history of delivering high quality undergraduate and graduate programs that prepare students to grow as competent, compassionate, and caring nursing professionals,” said Dr. Kathleen Wisser, dean of the School of Nursing. “This accreditation from the CCNE reaffirms the strength of our curriculum based on caring science, as well as our expert faculty.”

TriBeta Honor Society Plants Trees Across Campus
NDMU's Chapter of the TriBeta Biological Honor Society organized several recent tree planting sessions across campus, with a total of six new trees planted on the hill near the playground for A Child's Place and the path from Bunting Hall to the library. NDMU members involved in the effort included TriBeta Sustainability Coordinators Nicole Self and Katelyn Stephenson, Julie Asbury, Esmeralda Encinas, Kritika KC, Nwanneka Udolisa and Chemistry Department lab manager Pat Bell.
TriBeta has been planting trees on campus annually since 2008. The effort originally began to honor and celebrate the life of Dr. Nancy Kreiter, a biology professor and staunch advocate for ecology who passed away unexpectedly in 2007. TriBeta not only plants the trees, they also care for them for several years after planting, keeping them watered, mulched, and protected until they are large enough to be on their own. Some of the needed funds for tree planting activities are generated by the recycling of printer cartridges left in designated areas around campus.
