Okay, here's a question. I've always understood that it is important to participate in an accredited nursing program. But whose accreditation counts? I believe I read in a thread a few days ago to check the www.nlnac.org
website, which I did, only to find out that NONE of the nursing programs
I am entertaining (I won't be applying until next year) are present on that site as having NLNAC accreditation.
Some of these non-NLNAC accredited schools have been described as "excellent" programs, and a few have "voluntarily withdrawn" from their accreditation. How should I take this information? Is the NLNAC who to look at for accredited programs, or should I look more toward who's accredited by the state board of nursing (or do they even give accreditation to schools?)?
I don't want to consider schools that will make me ineligible for aid/jobs, etc., but it seems like the NLNAC doesn't give accreditation to very many institutions, so I'm very confused.
