  Nursing School Accreditation
There are two nationally recognized organizations that provide nursing education program accreditation. These include The National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). While not every nursing school and nursing program is NLNAC or CCNE accredited, and obtaining a quality nursing education from a non-NLNAC or CCNE accredited school is acceptible, earning a degree from an education institution accredited by either the NLNAC or CCNE ensures that you will be qualified to attend another accredited school of nursing down the road, should you decide to pursue an advanced nursing degree (i.e. RN-to-BSN, Master’s in Nursing, LPN, etc.)

There are also accreditation organizations for fields in advanced practice nursing, including the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) Division of Accreditation (DOA) and Council of Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs, to name just two.
