Community College Accreditation...

  1. Hello all,

    Without naming schools, a certain Community College that offers an ADN is accredited with the IL Dept of Professional Regulation only and not NLNAC. Is that a big deal? Could that a potential problem as far as getting a job and continuing education down the road? Thanks!

    It will not affect your ability to sit for NCLEX and become licensed.

    It may affect your ability to get accepted into a BSN or MSN program in the future.

    NLN accreditation was once considered the "gold standard" for nursing education programs. It is still well-recognized, but there seems to be a small number of schools moving away from it, as it is a very expensive and time-consuming process to go thru accreditation. There are factors other than accreditation that can indicate a quality nursing education program.
