Accreditation question ...

  1. 0 Hello.

    I'm currently a student nurse @ Herzing University (Winter Park, FL) and plan on continuing on all the way to DNP once I graduate. They are NLN accredited and they also offer a bachelor's degree, but not MSN or DNP degrees.

    As I move forward with my education, what accreditation should I look for in institutions that offer the DNP degree?

    Look for programs where the DNP programs have CCNE accreditation (not just accreditation for the MSN programs).

    NLN accreditation covers the accreditation for programs from the CNA level to the BSN level. CCNE covers BSN degrees and above.

    Hi Devon Rex, I am also planning on starting the RN program in Herzing WP, hopefully Jan 2013. How is the program so far? Hope to get some information from you. Thanks!

    NLNAC accredits all programs, not just up to BSN. CCNE doesn't accredit programs below a BSN, though.

    NLN does not accredit doctoral programs.

    Actually, NLNAC--now calling itself ACEN--does accredit doctoral programs. Per their website, they've accredited 7 of them.
