    Your instructor may be referring to the NLNAC accreditation, which no school in Arizona currently holds that accreditation. CCNE is the regional accreditation that Chamberlain holds in Arizona through their Illinois campus and has been approved by the AZ Board of Nursing.
    Chamberlain has a physical campus in Arizona along with an online program based out of Illinois. Both programs are accredited as stated.

    Maybe he meant that no BSN programs in Arizona have the NLNAC accreditation. I know that the CCNE only accredits BSN programs, so all ADN programs that are accredited are done so by the NLNAC.

    From what I understand, if you get a degree from Chamberlin, and then later decide to go to ASU or UofA to get your masters degree, you will not be able to do so with a degree from Chamberlin because it will not be recognized.

    Am I wrong? It would be great if I am.

    When stating a school you need to specify the campus and program. Each campus and each program has separate accreditation, or lack thereof. You can go to school X and receive an accredited ASN and turn around and receive a non accredited BSN from the same campus.

    The Phoenix Chamberlain and Online Chamberlain undergraduate BSN degrees are accredited by CCNE. Graduates of either pathways are recognized by ASU. There may be some additional pre-requisite or co-requisite classes that have to be satisfied before admission however.

    If you attend the Phoenix campus of Chamberlain College of Nursing,then yes, you are wrong.

    And just a piece of info regarding BSN vs. ADN, I interviewed for a new grad position this week at one of the bigger hospital groups in Phoenix, and the Nurse Recruiter flat out told me that the hiring manager (so the RN manager on the unit) gave her specific directions that she did not even want to see any applications from ADN graduates.

    Jasonjacobson hello I see that you're a graduate of CCON I wanted to know did you have an issue with getting employment with a degree from this school?? There is much controversy with whether or not they are accredited. If you can clear this up that would be great.
