NLNAC vs CCNE accreditation...is one better than the other?Register Today!
- by whatdoIdonow? Jul 23, '12I was hoping for info on NLNAC vs CCNE accreditation. I see both when I am looking at school and wondered if it is nationally acceptable to do either. Are both widely accepted for BSN to transfer to MSN programs?
- Jul 30, '12 by JustADreamI believe certain organizations will only accept CCNE, so I would check with the school or facility that you want to be a part of after this degree. An example is the U.S. Navy. According to their website and the information I was sent, one of the qualifications is:
"Be a student or graduate in good standing of a U.S. education program granting a bachelor of science degree and accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE)"
Best of luck!
