Abstract

Baccalaureate and graduate nursing education programs now have a choice of professional accrediting bodies and must make a decision about which best suits the needs of their individual programs. The authors describe the accreditation process and procedures of the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. The purpose, philosophy, standards, accreditation process, fees, review cycle, and length of accreditation are compared.
