The public is invited to provide feedback no later than September 30, 2017 using the provided form.  All feedback received will be reviewed by the NLN CNEA Policy and Procedures Committee and used to inform final revisions to the policies.


NLN CNEA Grants Nursing Programs Accreditation 
Concordia College Alabama in Selma and Wilson College in Chambersburg, PA became the first institutions to gain accreditation for their nursing programs through the National League for Nursing Commission for Nursing Education Accreditation (NLN CNEA), the NLN CNEA Board of Commissioners has announced. The schools’ programs were acted upon by the NLN CNEA commissioners at their February 2017 board meeting.

After completing the pre-accreditation process in spring 2016, each college submitted a self-study report and then welcomed NLN CNEA on-site program evaluators to campus in fall 2016. Wilson’s bachelor’s and master’s of science in nursing degree programs and Concordia Alabama’s bachelor of science (RN-BSN) degree program were each granted initial accreditation for a term of six years, through February 2023.

NLN CNEA Joins Other Accrediting Agencies in Nursing Education in Historic Collaboration to Issue Joint Statement 

The National League for Nursing Commission for Nursing Education Accreditation (NLN CNEA); the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN); and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) have come together around the issue of academic progression in nursing. The three, which set national standards for nursing programs across the spectrum of higher education, released a joint statement affirming their endorsement of academic progression models in nursing. The statement was developed in cooperation with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Academic Progression in Nursing (APIN) program. This is the first time the three accrediting bodies have collaborated on a statement addressing nursing education.

The full statement is available here.
