SCHOOL CREDENTIALS Confused

  1. What, if any, is the difference between a BSN program that is NLNAC accredited and one that is CCNE accredited? Thanks for the replies!

    Both are legitimate accrediting agencies approved by the Department of Education to accredit nursing. NLN is the oldest. CCNE only accredits BSN, MSN, DNS programs. NLN accredits these too and also LPN, RN/Diploma, RN ASN.
