Yesterday we proudly announced that the Board of Commissioners granted initial accreditation to Nexus University’s baccalaureate and master’s nursing programs. So today, we want to delve into the importance of this ACEN accreditation for the world of nursing.  

Why is this accreditation relevant?

The Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) supports the interests of nursing education, nursing practice, and the public by providing specialized accreditation for all levels of nursing education and transition-to-practice programs. As the leading authority in nursing education accreditation, the goal of ACEN is to be a supportive partner in strengthening the quality of nursing education and transition-to-practice programs. 

Let’s see some benefits of ACEN Accreditation: 

  • Aids in student recruitment. 
  • Provides students with useful information for career and education decision-making. 
  • Enables students’ eligibility for funding support from federal and state agencies, and foundations. 
  • It is required by many nursing programs for admission to undergraduate and graduate programs. 
  • It is required by some state regulatory agencies. 
  • Assists employers seeking graduates who are competent practitioners. 
  • Facilitates the transfer of credit using the following considerations: The educational quality of the institution from which the student transfers; the comparability of the nature, content, and level of credit earned from the programs offered by the receiving college or program; and the appropriateness and applicability of the credit earned from the programs offered by the receiving college considering the student’s educational goals. 
  • It heightens faculty members’ and administrators’ awareness and responsiveness to areas needing improvement. 
  • Offers professional development opportunity and validation for faculty.
