SALINA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas Wesleyan University is trying to decide what to do after getting more bad news about its nursing program.

The Salina Journal reports that the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education has rejected the school’s application for voluntary accreditation. The university shared the news with the campus Monday.

Last year, the school’s nursing program voluntarily withdrew from another group, the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, because it appeared it was about to be rejected for reaccreditation.

Kansas Wesleyan President Matt Thompson called the latest development “unexpected” in a news release. But he noted that 25 of the 28 criteria had been met.

No decision has been made about applying again for accreditation. The university’s Board of Trustees is expected to discuss the issue when it meets this week.
