The NJCU Nursing Program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission on Education in Nursing (ACEN) formerly known as the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC). ACEN is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as the national accrediting body for all types of nursing education programs.
ACEN supports the interests of nursing education, nursing practice, and the public by the functions of accreditation. Accreditation is a voluntary, self-regulatory process by which non-governmental associations recognize educational institutions or programs that have been found to meet or exceed standards and criteria for educational quality. Accreditation also assists in the further improvement of the institutions or programs as related to resources invested, processes followed, and results achieved. The monitoring of certificate, diploma, and degree offerings is tied closely to state examination and licensing rules, and to the oversight of preparation for work in the profession.
The Nursing Department has been continuously accredited since 1979 and was re-accredited in 2009. The department received the maximum term of eight years accreditation. Comments or concerns about the program may be directed to the ACEN at the following address::
