ACEN Accreditation

What is ACEN accreditation?

ACEN stands for Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.

The purpose of accreditation is to standardize and unify quality education for nursing students.

How Accreditation Benefits Students

What does accreditation mean for me?

Accreditation ensures you are receiving a quality nursing education. When you complete your program, you will be ready to enter the workforce with the skills employers expect.

Why does accreditation matter?

Accreditation shows potential employers and the community that your education has been thorough and complies with established standards for the practice, procedures, mission and philosophies of the nursing community.

Program Accreditation

How does a program become accredited?

Nursing programs achieve accreditation through public accountability and ongoing improvement. Administration, faculty and students in accredited programs like WSU’s regularly measure their performance and standards against ACEN’s. In an evaluation every eight years, a team of professionals visits the campus to see the program in action and analyze its compliance to standards and overall effectiveness.

 

Defining Accreditation

Who defines accreditation?

Nursing faculty and medical professionals work together to modify and update accreditation standards. Because the nursing profession is constantly changing, ACEN and schools work together to ensure that practices are current and effective.
