Collegiate High School at NWFSC29th Season

Associate in Nursing program recommended for ACEN accreditation

The Associate Degree in Nursing program at Northwest Florida State College has been recommended for national accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). The accreditation process is one way for NWF State College to demonstrate the quality and integrity of its nursing program. 


A team from ACEN visited the college in late January and recommended the program for national accreditation for five years.

However, two more steps remain before the accreditation becomes official. The Evaluation Review Panel will meet in June, and then the ACEN Board of Commissioners will make a final decision in July.

NWF State College's nursing education programs have maintained continuous accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) since their inception. In addition, the RN to BSN program has been accredited since 2009 by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and went through the reaccreditation process in 2013-14 and was awarded an additional 10 years for continued accreditation until 2024.

The RN to BSN degree is available completely online with guided clinical experiences that can be completed in the student's place of employment.
