I hate having to ask this..

  1. ...but I can't figure out where to go to see if the AGNP programs I am interested in are accredited in my home state (Washington State)? I have tried looking at the DOH website, but that only gives me the list of in state nursing programs.
  2. Visit pacnwRN profile page

    I called my board of nursing and told them the programs I was interested in, but I live in FL. Usually you can find at least the requirements listed on the board of nursing website, and go from there. (if they need to be CCNE accred etc)

    WAC 246-840-340: ARNP application requirements for new graduates of advanced registered nurse programs. according to this, I think it means that "For new graduates of advanced nursing education programs in the United States, the program must be accredited by a nursing or nursing-related accrediting organization recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE) or the Council of Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA);" it needs to be CCNE and CHEA? or either or???

    Thank you! That is what I have found as well. . Seems like I may just need to call the bon for some clarity.

    I could have sworn last time I looked at the programs available, I think like a month ago, there was an NP program list attached to the nursing program list. But I just checked again, and nothing. Either I was mistaken or they moved (hid) it somewhere. Their site is not very user friendly at all.
