What is ACEN?

The Accreditation for Education in Nursing (ACEN) is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization. ACEN accreditation is a voluntary peer-review process that evaluates nursing education programs based on established standards of quality and excellence.

Why is ACEN important?

While an associate degree in nursing is a great choice for those looking to dive in quickly, a BSN degree can position you for even more career opportunities. This is because more and more employers are now requiring nurses to have a bachelor’s level education. Because nursing is a growing field, those with BSN degrees can work towards opportunities for even higher earning potential, in specialized areas or in managerial roles.

What are the benefits of attending an ACEN accredited nursing program?

Students who attend ACEN-accredited programs will receive a high-quality education that meets national standards. ACEN accreditation can also enhance job prospects and eligibility for licensure.

How can I find out if a nursing program is ACEN accredited?

You can verify the accreditation status of a nursing program by visiting the ACEN website or contacting ACEN directly for the most up-to-date information.
