Lackawanna College RN-to-BSN Program Granted Accreditation
SCRANTON, Pa. – July 13, 2020 – The Lackawanna College RN-to-BSN program has been granted accreditation through the National League for Nursing Commission for Nursing Education Accreditation (NLN CNEA) Board of Commissioners on June 11, 2020.
Tracey Sebastianelli, the director of the nursing programs at Lackawanna College, said the accreditation process is important to ensuring that students receive a high-quality education that is held to the highest standards available.
“We are very pleased that Lackawanna College received accreditation for the online RN-to-BSN program,” said Sebastianelli. “Our focus is to provide a quality education to registered nurses who are looking to promote their professional practice, while meeting the increasing healthcare needs of our community.”
Launched in September of 2018, the RN-to-BSN program is an exclusively online degree completion program for active licensed registered nurses (RNs) who want to expand their education and career options. Initial accreditation status means that the Lackawanna College RN-to-BSN program is in compliance with NLN guidelines to provide an education to students who are seeking a degree as a professional nurse.
Program participants will build on previous learning from their entry-into-practice programs to achieve end-of-program outcomes based on the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s (AACN) Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice, as well as the American Nurses Associations’ (ANA) Scope and Standards of Practice.
