We Hold the Top Educational Accreditation Available to Colleges and Universities
UC College of Nursing
The College is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE)*, an accrediting agency devoted to the improvement of the public’s health. CCNE* accreditation ensures that nursing programs are held accountable to the greater community (including the nursing field, consumers, employers, higher education, students, and other nurses) and prepare individuals to fulfill their expected roles.
The University of Cincinnati
The University of Cincinnati is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. ∞
Regional accreditation is the primary type of institutional accreditation in the United States. Some institutions with online Master of Science in Nursing programs hold national accreditation rather than regional accreditation because they are unwilling or unable to meet the rigorous standards of regional accreditation. You should also be aware that many educational institutions holding regional accreditation do not recognize credits or degrees earned at other institutions that are nationally accredited. This will be important to you if transferring from one institution to another part way through a degree program, or if you plan to pursue additional degrees at different colleges.
