    Rio-Hondo is not NLNAC accredited. what does this mean?

    Would this limit a graduate of the program in any way? I know a graduate will still be able to take the NCLEX but what if we wanted to further our education? Because it is not accredited by NLNAC, will that disqualify a graduate from applying to a BSN/MSN program?

    If the BSN/MSN program has a preference about supplemental accreditation it will most likely be listed in its requirements or recommendations for admission. Supplemental accreditation may be of more consequence when moving from BSN to MSN but, of course, Rio Hondo is an ADN program. Unless you were looking at the RHC/CSULA bridge program. Then, it might be useful to research the accreditation of the BSN program at CSULA.

    Hi AnxiousAntsy,

    Was it someone at Rio Hondo who said applicants will be notified by the 3rd week in March? When I called to verify my application was received I was told applicants for the ADN Fall 2013 program should receive a letter by the 2nd or 3rd week of April. Of course it would be great to know sooner!

    The clerk told me to check back April 15, she said there are over 200 applications, only 50 openings, it sounds competitive, I am anxious about it!
