Online RN-To-BSN accreditation

  1. 0
    I am an ADN looking to obtain a BSN through an exclusively online program. I am under somewhat of a time crunch, and need to finish my degree by the end of the summer semester 2014.

    I have been accepted to two programs; however, neither is regionally accredited. Both are accredited through the NLNAC. Are online programs ever regionally accredited? I know next to nothing about accreditation. Is NLNAC accreditation enough? I have no immediate plans to continue my education beyond the BSN, but who knows what the future holds.

    Arizona State University, University of Texas - Arlington, Western Governors University all have RN-BSN programs completely online, regional accreditation, and can be completed by Summer 2014, depending on how many GEs you need.

    Here's a thread on NLNAC accreditation that may give you some insight. I think NLNAC is fine, I don't think you need regional accreditation.

    Check out Grand Canyon University. 100% online and each class is only 5 wks in length. GCU is also regionally accredited. I am a current student there and when I was looking for a program I made sure it had that accreditation. You just never know what future employers may look for, so it's better to cover your bases now.
