The School of Nursing is in the process of preparing an application to the Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME) for preaccreditation of a Nurse Midwifery major within our DNP Program. In accordance with ACME Policies and Procedures (June 2013), ACME is seeking written third-party comment concerning the qualifications for preaccreditation of the University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing nurse-midwifery program. This program will be reviewed for preaccreditation at a future ACME Board of Review meeting. Upon request, comments will be considered confidential.
Your comments will be included with other program materials undergoing review. In all instances, your comments must directly relate to the preaccreditation of a program and the ACME Criteria for Programmatic Accreditation (December 2009, Revised June 2013). This document can be found at www.midwife.org/Accreditation under ACME Documents. Please cite the particular criterion you are referencing in your comments.
All written comments should be sent by January 15, 2016, to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to ACME at 8403 Colesville Rd., Suite 1550, Silver Springs, MD 20910.
