“Connie Carpenter and Julie Johnson, of Carpenter and Johnson Nursing Education Consulting, recently provided guidance during a situation in which the nursing school needed external guidance and an unbiased perspective. They were clear on what they were comfortable doing, offered various levels of help, and throughout the work were professional, courteous and approachable. If your needs matches their expertise, I strongly recommend that you contact this consulting group.”

“Dr. Julie Johnson was invaluable to our recent reaccreditation preparation. Her attention to details and insightful tips helped us do well during our site visit. She adapted her consultation based on our school’s uniqueness as a program but making sure all required elements were meticulously considered. We also used her for our initial reaccreditation and we are very happy with the results.”

“Dr. Carpenter and Dr. Johnson, of Carpenter and Johnson Nursing Education Consulting, conducted an excellent 2-day consultation visit with our faculty that resulted in effective outcomes that directly related to our accreditation self-study, test-item writing and analysis, and curriculum mapping across all programs. I especially liked their ability to capture the attention of the faculty by making the material applicable with explicit examples from our undergraduate and graduate programs. The faculty left the visit with “real” tools and plans to enhance the programs and prepare for accreditation. I would highly recommend Carpenter and Johnson Nursing Education Consulting to any nursing program!“
