St. Elizabeth School of Nursing in Lafayette recently received official notification that the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) Board of Commissioners granted the school continuing accreditation for eight years. That is the maximum accreditation period allowed by ACEN. The next site visit at the School of Nursing for continuing accreditation will be scheduled for 2023. “This accreditation is earned and gives us great pride,” said Deacon John Jezierski, director of the St. Elizabeth School of Nursing. “This is only one of many ways that we set ourselves apart from other programs. Our faculty and staff have achieved this accreditation by providing top quality education for our students.” The St. Elizabeth School of Nursing, a division of Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health, was established in 1897.
