    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. Do they look more heavily at the original school of nursing, or the highest degree achieved?
    @ CarrythatWeight, please i need more information from you. Am about to graduate from a non accredited nursing program;am planning to do my RN TO BSN from a CCNE accredited school. Will the employers put much prominence on my ADN over my BSN. Thank you

    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?

    I wanted to see if the same consensus were true for new ADN nursing programs. They have their initial license from the state but no accreditation from ACEN or NLN. Graduation from there would allow you to sit for the NCLEX-RN. I know that there is a process to becoming accredited and it is not immediate.
