The Division of Nursing and Allied Health would like to extend a big MAHALO to the faculty and staff who supported us during our National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) site visit in February. We wish to thank Joni Onishi, Mike Leialoha, Jim Yoshida, Guy Kimura, Lori Fukui-Stoos, Sherri Fujita, Kenoa Dela Cruz, Lari-Anne Au, Gwen Kimura, and the Division Chairs for taking time to meet with the site visitors. The visitors had much praise for our College and our AS degree nursing program. They recommended continued accreditation for 8 years, the maximum achievable. The NLNAC Board of Commissioners will meet in June to make a final decision. Thank you to the faculty and staff of HawCC for your continued support!
