On September 17, 2010 the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education approved the sale of Labouré College to Steward Health Care. In approving the change of ownership, the Commission applied its Program of Special Monitoring to the College. The Program of Special Monitoring is routinely implemented by the Commission in cases of change of ownership and enables the Commission to monitor the institution’s ongoing compliance with the Standards for Accreditation. Further information about the Program of Special Monitoring is available on the Commission’s website http://cihe.neasc.org/ or upon request from:
The Commission on Institutions of Higher Education

Though Labouré College separated from Steward Health Care in 2013, the college will remain in the Program of Special Monitoring until a comprehensive site visit is conducted. The college’s status will be updated in October of 2013.
Additionally, each of our programs is accredited by the discipline-specific, specialized accrediting body.
As a college with the distinct focus of education for practice in the health sector, we are committed to preparing individuals to deliver patient-centered care as members of an interdisciplinary team. The individual programs provide clinical education emphasizing evidence-based practice, including the latest research and clinical expertise. Quality improvement approaches and the use of information technology are important components of each program.
