nln accreditation, school accreditation and state board of nursing approval are three completely different issues.
unfortunately the general public gets them confused with one another quite often. this leads to misinformation and incorrect statements.
beckfield college, like many northern kentucky area nursing schools
- but not all, is approved by the kbn (kentucky board of nursing). this means that graduates can register for and take the state licensure exam (lpn and rn).
in order to sit for your nclex exam (lpn or rn) the kbn requires that the school you graduated from be approved by them - they are the body that administers the nclex testing for lpn & rn licensure in kentucky.
the nln accreditation has nothing to do with your ability to take the nclex exam.
as a school, nursing aside, beckfield college (again like many northern kentucky area colleges - but not all) is accredited by the acis - the accrediting council for independent colleges and schools. because the school is accredited financial aid is available to those who qualify.
so for clarification:
beckfield college florence kentucky campus offers lpn, rn and rn to bsn programs.
the tri-county ohio beckfield college does not offer any of these programs at this time.
beckfield college florence kentucky campus is accredited by the acis
beckfield college florence kentucky campus nursing programs
are approved by the kbn
beckfield college florence kentucky campus is a member of the national league of nursing accreditation commission nln-ac and is currently in the process of becoming accredited by them.
i hope this helps to clear up some of the confusion. good luck!
