The ACEN is the entity that is responsible for the specialized accreditation of nursing education programs, both post-secondary and higher degree, which offer either a certificate, a diploma, or a recognized professional degree (clinical doctorate, master's/post-master's certificate, baccalaureate, associate, diploma, and practical).
The Commission has authority and accountability inherent in the application of standards and criteria, accreditation processes, and the affairs, management, policy-making, and general administration of the ACEN.
Oakwood University was granted continuing accreditation on June 29-30, 2010, for the next 8 years. The next evaluation visit will be Spring 2018.
The Department of Nursing offers two baccalaureate degree options: a generic (four-year BS) option that prepares students to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nursing (NCLEX-RN); and a two-year non-generic option (RN-BS) that provides registered nurses prepared at the associate degree level an opportunity to obtain a bachelors degree in nursing. Both programs prepare students for graduate study in nursing and to practice at the professional level in a variety of health care settings, including the community, industry, government, hospitals, and clinics.
