    Does anyone know what the situation would be if the ADN program was not accredited but the BSN program is? I graduated from an ADN program that is state BON approved, but not accredited by the NLN. However, I did my RN to BSN program at at CCNE accredited school. So far, this has not been an issue for me.

    Can someone clarifiy for me the difference between approved but not accredited? The school I'm interested in says they are approved on the Florida BON but not accredited. Looks like they are nationally accredited?
