Preparing a Continuous Improvement Progress Report

The following resources are for programs submitting a midterm Continuous Improvement Progress Report (CIPR), to demonstrate continued compliance with the accreditation standards as well as ongoing program improvement. If you have questions about the report or submission process, please contact Lina Trullinger.

Submission Guidelines

All reports must be submitted electronically to ccnereports@ccneaccreditation.org.

Reports due before January 1, 2019

Please note: CIPRs being submitted on December 1, 2018 should continue to address the 2013 Standards for Accreditation of Baccalaureate and Graduate Nursing Programs, which will remain in effect at the time of report submission. The amended standards will not take effect until January 1, 2019.

Programs may choose to use which template they would prefer to use.

In 2018, CCNE piloted a new CIPR template. This new template has been created with input from chief nurse administrators and faculty and it is intended to simplify how programs address their demonstrated compliance with the standards and key elements. Alternatively, programs may use the existing CIPR template, if they prefer to do so.
