The NDSU Student Health Service has received a three-year accreditation, according to Donna Morrison, Student Health Service director.
The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care Inc. (AAAHC) conducted a site survey of the Student Health Service June 28-29.
On July 26, Morrison received notification of the accreditation. “The dedication and effort necessary for an organization to be accredited is substantial, and the compliance with AAAHC standards implies a commitment to continual self-evaluation and continuous improvement,” the letter stated. “Granting accreditation reflects confidence, based on evidence from this recent survey that you meet ... the attributes of an accreditable organization as reflected in the standards found in the AAAHC Handbook.”
This is the second successful accreditation the Student Health Service has achieved. Initial accreditation came in 2007.
