Nursing School Accreditation

An accredited nursing school is one that meets or surpasses benchmarks in educational standards.

There are two national organizations that accredit nursing programs, the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE)

To work as a nurse, you don’t need to go to a school that’s accredited, but the transition to a graduate program may be easier if you do. Also, some scholarships are available only to students attending accredited nursing schools. Check out the links below to find out more.
