    No, they didn't. They're holding their first site review today for the accreditation. They're candidates, meaning they've applied.

    If you ever want to see which schools have been accredited in TX, here's the list

    It says they are accredited by SACS (forgot what it stands for)...do they need more accreditation?

    That's the overall school's accreditation. Definitely important, but being a graduate of an accredited nursing program means it was accredited by the NLNAC or the CCNE. If they're granted accreditation at any point while you're there, you'll always be a graduate from an accredited school. If they're accredited after you graduate, it doesn't come back to you.

    Not trying to discourage anyone from attending, just something to be aware of when you're decision making

    I'll probably go here if I do not get accepted anywhere in Houston. Oh and yall I went and spoke to the advisor for the med programs and I was told they were expecting to be accredited in August.
