one of the programs i'm looking into has nlnac accreditation for the accelerated bsn, but not ccne approval. what exactly does this mean? is this a problem in terms of finding jobs, etc.? will it be a problem later on?

Thanks so much!

They're two separate organizations that issue accreditation to nursing programs. It is common to see programs accredited by one and not the other. I wouldn't sweat it.

From my understanding, CCNE only accredits BSN and MSN programs, NLNAC can accredit any type of program. Just be sure that your program is accredited by one of the two.
