CASN Works with Haitians to Establish an Approval Program for Schools of Nursing
In September 2013, CASN began a project to establish standards
for nursing education programs and to revise the process of approval in Haiti.
Improving Nursing Education in Haiti by Strengthening Quality Standards
“To improve nursing education in Haiti, the USAID-funded Health
Financing and Governance (HFG) project is working closely with
the Ministry of Health or Ministère de la Santé Publique
et de la Population to strengthen its ability to manage an
effective standards-based quality system for nursing educational
institutions. This system is known as “reconnaissance.” In particular,
HFG is working with the Département de Formation et de Perfectionnement
des Sciences de la Santé (DFPSS) or the Department of Training and
Development for Health Sciences, which is the MOH unit responsible
for nursing education.”

CASN and CCNE Sign a Mutual Recognition Agreement for 2013-2016!
In October 2013, officials from the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) of the United States signed a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA). Both organizations are recognized as accrediting agencies for registered nursing education in their respective counties. Both organizations acknowledge that although the forms of accreditation are not interchangeable because of some differences, each party fully recognizes the credibility of the accreditation process of the other.
