Dual Accreditations for Nursing Program

There are just two Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) educational programs in Pennsylvania that are accredited by both national professional nursing accreditation agencies.  Marywood's BSN program is one of those two.  In Fall 2014, the Marywood Nursing program received word that the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) had awarded the BSN program initial, five-year accreditation from January 13, 2014 through December 31, 2019.  The BSN program is also fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) from 2014 to 2022.
