A leading international academic and research nursing institution.



The Chiang Mai University Faculty of Nursing is accredited by The Thailand Ministry of Education, Office of Higher Education Commission and the Thailand Nursing and Midwifery Council. Both institutions review and approve all curricula to ensure they adhere to the Thailand Qualification Framework for Higher Education.

The Office of the Higher Education Commission encourages all universities to use the Education Criteria for Performance Excellence (EdPEx) as a way to evaluate and improve performance. EdPEx is based on The Baldrige Program, founded in the US, which is a public-private partnership that provides organizational assessment tools and criteria. Each year the Faculty of Nursing participates in the EdPEx assessment to mark program progress towards institutional goals. The assessment is a combination of self-assessment and external evaluation.

The Thailand Nursing and Midwifery Council assesses all advanced nursing trainings and short-training courses and determines the number of continuing nurse education units (CNEU) that can be earned.
