1. Make sure the university
you choose is regionally
accredited (WASC, Middle States, New England, North Central, etc)
2. Make sure the university's nursing programs
accredited by eith CCNE or NLNAC.
Typically, accredited schools proudly display this info on their websites and marketing materials (accredited universities and programs WANT you to know this) If you are in doubt, I would check with www.ed.gov
where you can search by school...
Choosing a fully accredited RN to BSN program will allow you to transfer your credits and/or degree should you choose to continue your education at another institution.
Using Walden as an example-
1. Walden is regionally
accredited by the North Central Association
2. Walden's BSN program is nationally
accredited by CCNE
