Abstract

Continuous quality improvement is an essential element of the accreditation process. This article describes the content and process for writing the Continuous Improvement Progress Report (CIPR) required by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) at the midpoint of the accreditation cycle. The rationale for writing the report and the purpose for the contents of the report are reviewed. The content of the CIPR addresses all standards and key elements of the CCNE Standards for Accreditation of Baccalaureate and Graduate Degree Nursing Programs, amended April 2009. Many program administrators and faculty lack an understanding of the significance of the report, how to write the report, or what should be included. This article is designed to help guide the writers of the report through the process.
