LHU nursing program granted continuing accreditation status

LOCK HAVEN — The Lock Haven University RN to BSN online nursing program has been granted continuing accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) Board of Commissioners.

“Lock Haven University BSN program is dedicated to delivering the highest standard of nursing education,” said Jennifer K. DellAntonio, chair and LHU associate professor. “The ACEN accreditation is a rigorous and faculty-driven process. Successfully fulfilling ACEN’s requirements and earning accreditation reinforces the nursing department is delivering on our responsibility to offer outstanding nursing education to our students and the communities we serve.”

ACEN supports the interests of nursing education, practice and the public by the functions of accreditation. Accreditation is a voluntary, peer-review, self-regulatory process by which non-governmental associations recognize educational institutions or programs that meet or exceed standards and criteria for educational quality, according to the ACEN website.

To enter the RN to BSN program at LHU, students must have proof of graduation from an accredited nursing program and proof of current registered nurse licensure. LHU’s bachelor of science in nursing program is an online program. Select nursing courses require an external clinical experience.
