Question: What are some NLNAC accredited online nursing programs? thanks
If you are looking for an initial RN degree, I'm not sure there are any that are completely online. Nursing school doesn't really seem to be cut out for an online curriculum. There are skills labs and clinicals that cannot be done online.
There may be some, though. I'm not sure.

What type of program are you looking for? Are you already an LPN and looking for an LPN-RN program? Or are you starting completely "from scratch" with no previous health care education? If you are starting completely from scratch, the clinical training becomes a big issue.
Are you talking LPN-RN, LPN-BSN, RN-BSN, RN-MSN or what?
Check the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) website:
If that link to a list of all the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) accredited BSN and graduate programs in the US does not work, you might have to go to the AACN home site itself: http://www.aacn.nche.edu
I believe that the CCNE accredits BSN and master's programs only. While BSN programs could be NLNAC-accredited, most of the NLNAC-accredited programs are LPN/LVN, ADN, or Diploma. It is a bit confusing that there are two different bodies accrediting nursing programs!
Here is some more information for you about the CCNE:
Hope this helps!
