Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology: In addition to opportunities for providing public comment regarding a program’s accreditation status, the CAA has separate procedures for filing a formal complaint about a CAA-accredited program or one seeking a CAA accreditation status. Individuals who wish to file a formal complaint should contact the Accreditation Office to obtain a copy of the complaint procedures, or refer to the Procedures for Complaints Against Graduate Education Programs on the CAA website.

DNP PRACTICUMS  - section added 

The Doctor of Nursing Practice program will have two different entry points; students may enter with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN). If students enter the DNP program with a BSN, they will complete role specialization practica as well as practica focused on leadership, evidence-based practice, and completion of their DNP scholarly program. If students enter the DNP program with an MSN, having completed their role specialization in their MSN program, their practica will be focused on leadership, evidence-based practice, and completion of their DNP scholarly program. The types of sites that will be selected for the practicums for the DNP program differ upon the role of the specialty such as hospitals and large clinics in the student’s own local area but the program director or designee will approve the preceptor and the practicum site to ensure that the preceptor does have the education and expertise in the student’s chosen specialty and that the practicum site can provide the required learning experiences. The students will translate synthesis of the knowledge acquired in the didactic courses to doctoral level practice in the practice setting. Practicum I, II, and III courses are 4-8 credit courses offered over 15 weeks and are 180-405 practicum clock hours.
