SALEM, W.VA.—The West Virginia Board of Examiners for Registered Professional Nurses on Friday approved the continuation of provisional accreditation of Salem International University’s (SIU) Associate of Science in Nursing program.  The Board reversed its earlier June 13 decision to withdraw provisional accreditation.
Provisional accreditation permits the university to offer the program that prepares students to sit for the State Board’s RN exam.  The Board’s decision contains certain conditions the university must meet.
“We are pleased with the Board’s reversal of its earlier decision.   The University looks forward to working collegially with the Board,” said John Luotto, president of Salem International University.
Salem International University is celebrating its 125th anniversary.  Established in 1888 as Salem College, SIU has a strong tradition of academic excellence and innovation. SIU offers Associate, Bachelor and Graduate degrees in high demand fields including: Nursing, Business, Education, Computer Science and Criminal Justice. The university also offers online MBA courses that are the perfect fit for busy working adults.
Salem International University, a private, for-profit institution of higher learning, is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association, and its education programs are approved by the West Virginia Board of Education.
