Starting a Nursing Program

Thinking of starting a new nursing program to help address the nursing shortage? Our consultants have experience developing successful new nursing programs at all levels–LPN/LVN, ADN, BSN, MSN and DPN. Our process is designed to align with the accreditation requirements of either the NLN Commission for Nursing Education Accreditation (CNEA) or the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). Whether you are looking for someone to assist with all phases of the launch or just a specific step, we can help you reach your goals.

Services include:

    • Feasibility studies
    • Budget projections
    • Clinical site affiliations
    • Applicant pool/sustainability
    • Self-studies
    • Curricula
    • Bylaws
    • Policies and procedures
    • Systematic Plan of Evaluation
    • Reports for all phases of approval
    • Coordination with state Boards of Nursing
    • Interim Dean services

Please note: we only work with existing, state-approved schools. If this is not the case, we are unable to help you.

“Finding Collaborative Momentum Consulting was my lucky break.  After following dozens of leads, I finally connected with Susan Sportsman, and knew immediately that she was the consultant for us.  She responded promptly, communicated regularly, and demonstrated  a first-hand knowledge of nursing education, accreditation requirements, budgetary and administrative challenges, and how to build a strong BSN program from the ground up.  With Susy’s help, we were able to meet the mandate from our Board of Trustees to create a competitive, academically rigorous baccalaureate program on short order, meeting Pre-requisite and Initial Approval from the Board of Registration in Nursing with time to spare. Susy is also the most competent and delightful person you’ll ever work with: she wowed our trustees, charmed our Chief Financial Officer, and exceeded all of my expectations.  Our first nursing cohort will launch in Fall 2019 due in large part to the hard work and encouraging spirit of the Collaborative Momentum Consulting team.  I’m told that I’m a tough grader, but CMC earns my highest recommendation!” — Louise Carroll Keeley, Ph.D., Provost and Academic Vice President, Assumption College
