School accreditation question---please help!
- 0The nursing school I'm applying to is opening up a new campus close to home, so naturally I want to attend school there. The main university is CCNE accredited. Does this mean the new campus or extension of the university will automatically be CCNE accredited as well? Do new school locations have to apply to become accredited, or is it still under the "umbrella" of the main campus?
If they do have to become accredited, how long does that take? What does that mean for a nursing student? Thanks! I just don't want to make a big mistake!

I just found out that even if you go to an accredited school...it doesn't mean if you move the state you move too might not acceot your schooling and will not give you a license. Which just blows my mind.
