NLAC 2008 BSN Standards STANDARD 5 Resources Fiscal, physical, and learning resources promote the achievement of the goals and outcomes of the nursing education unit. 5.1 Fiscal resources are sufficient to ensure the achievement of the nursing education unit outcomes and commensurate with the resources of the governing organization. 5.2 Physical resources (classrooms, laboratories, offices, etc.) are sufficient to ensure the achievement of the nursing education unit outcomes and meet the needs of faculty, staff, and students. 5.3 Learning resources and technology are selected by the faculty and are comprehensive, current, and accessible to faculty and students, including those engaged in alternative methods of delivery. For nursing education units engaged in distance education, the additional criterion is applicable: 5.4 Fiscal, physical, technological, and learning resources are sufficient to meet the needs of faculty and students and ensure that students achieve learning outcomes.
AACN– American Association of Colleges of Nursing http://www.aacn.nche.edu/ http://www.aacn.nche.edu/ Standards for Accreditation of Baccalaureate and Graduate Degree Nursing Programs, 2009 http://www.aacn.nche.edu/accreditation/pdf/standards.pdf – Baccalaureate degree nursing programs – Master’s degree nursing programs – Clinical nursing doctorates that are practice-focused and have the title Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP).

CCNE Standards for library services II-B. Academic support services are sufficient to ensure quality and are evaluated on a regular basis to meet program and student needs. Elaboration: Academic support services (e.g., library, technology, distance education support, research support, admission, and advising services) are adequate for students and faculty to meet program requirements and to achieve the mission, goals, and expected student and faculty outcomes. There is a defined process for regular review of the adequacy of the program’s academic support services. Review of academic support services occurs and improvements are made as appropriate. http://www.aacn.nche.edu/accreditation/pdf/standards.pdf http://www.aacn.nche.edu/accreditation/pdf/standards.pdf
