Education

The School of Education at Trevecca Nazarene University is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). This accreditation covers initial teacher preparation programs and advanced educator preparation programs*. The School of Education was initially accredited by NCATE in 2009 and was last reaffirmed by NCATE in 2016. The teaching majors offered in collaboration with other University departments are approved by the Tennessee State Board of Education and are part of the NCATE unit accreditation. The next accreditation visit - using Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) Standards - is scheduled for Fall 2022. Trevecca Nazarene University educational licensure and endorsement programs are not approved by any other states for licensure recommendation. However, reciprocity may exist between state accrediting bodies**.   Reciprocity agreements allow states to work through variations in licensing systems to coordinate license transfer.

Physician Assistant

Each individual state governs the practice of medicine and the issuance of medical licenses within that state. Therefore, the rules, regulations, and specific requirements for procuring a license to practice as a physician assistant will vary from state to state. The state specific rules and regulations governing the issuance of a license to practice as a physician assistant for all states are below (listed by state) and can be found at http://www.nccpa.net/stateboards .

In order to obtain national certification via the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA), an individual must pass NCCPA’s Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination (PANCE). To be eligible for NCCPA’s PANCE, an individual must have graduated from a physician assistant program that is accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) at the time of graduation. Additional information regarding PANCE eligibility requirements may be found at https://www.nccpa.net/pance-eligibility .

Trevecca Nazarene University’s Physician Assistant Program is currently accredited by the ARC-PA.

Professional Accountancy

Trevecca currently offers the following accounting degrees:  Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) with a Concentration in Accounting (120 credit hours), Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) with a Concentration in Professional Accountancy (150 credit hours).

To obtain initial licensure as a CPA in Tennessee and all other states, a candidate is required to have successfully completed 150 credit hours including a prescribed number of accounting and business credit hours (which varies by state).  In addition to the exam, the majority of states require CPA candidates to complete a certain number of years of accounting experience and pass an ethics test before they obtain initial licensure. Trevecca’s Professional Accountancy degree meets the education requirement for Tennessee and the majority of states. Students seeking licensure in a state other than Tennessee are advised to contact the appropriate state board of accountancy (see https://nasba.org/stateboards/). Students are also encouraged to speak with an accounting advisor at Trevecca for assistance at 615.248.1256.

There are a number of states that allow students to sit for the CPA exam who have completed 120 credit hours toward an accounting degree.  Students must eventually satisfy each state’s education and experience requirement to be licensed. Tennessee requires students to complete the 150 credit hours before sitting for the CPA exam.  Students seeking to sit for the exam in another state are advised to contact the appropriate state board of accountancy (details available by state at https://nasba.org/stateboards/).

Professional Counseling (Clinical Mental Health Counseling) and Marriage and Family Therapy

The degree programs offered through the Graduate Counseling program at Trevecca Nazarene University are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). The following degree programs are offered through the Graduate Counseling program: Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (MA in CMHC), Master of Marriage and Family Counseling/Therapy (MMFC/T), and Doctoral of Philosophy in Clinical Counseling: Teaching and Supervision (PhD). The Graduate Counseling program was initially accredited by CACREP in 2015.

The MA in CMHC includes all academic curriculum requirements in order for a graduates of this program to pursue the Tennessee state licensing process (post-master’s) to become a Licensed Professional Counselor with Mental Health Service Provider designation (LPC-MHSP).  The MMFC/T includes all academic curriculum requirements in order for a graduates of this program to pursue the Tennessee state licensing process (post-master’s) to become a Licensed Marital and Family Therapist.  The MA in CMHC and the MMFC/T curriculum are not designed to meet academic requirements for the licensure process in any state other than that of Tennessee.  If A) a student chooses to complete the MA in CMHC or MMFC/T at Trevecca and then later moves to another state to pursue the state licensure process of that state or B) if a graduate of the MA in CMHC or MMFC/T at Trevecca obtains Tennessee state licensure and later moves to another state and seeks licensure transfer, please be advised that state licensing rules and regulations differ by state and by licensure (Professional Counseling or Marriage and Family Therapy).  Visit the licensing board website of the state of interest in order to access specific licensing rules and regulations by state.

NOTE: The licensing board information by state is for both professional counseling and marriage and family therapy.  Where there are two sets of information by state, the first set is for professional counseling; where there is only one set of information, the licensing boards cover both counseling and marriage and family.

Additionally, the Graduate Counseling program offers a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Clinical Counseling: Teaching and Supervision.  The Ph.D. in Clinical Counseling at Trevecca is not an educational program that is intended to lead to licensure in any state, including but not limited to licensure as a professional counselor, a marital and family therapist, or a clinical psychologist.

(If a student chooses to utilize any of the coursework of the Ph.D. program toward licensure in any state, please be advised that state licensing rules and regulations differ by state, and the program makes no guarantee that any of the Ph.D. coursework will be applicable toward licensure in any state.  Please go to the licensing board of the state of interest in order to access specific licensing rules and regulations according to state.)
