College of the Canyons Nursing Program pursued specialized programmatic accreditation through the National League for Nursing-Commission for Nursing Education Accreditation (NLN-CNEA). The college and nursing program faculty recognize and value the need for achieving this mark of distinction and believe that CNEA accreditation has greater alignment with the quality outcomes of our associate degree nursing (ADN) program curriculum.

Please note that specialized programmatic accreditation is not an expectation but rather a voluntary choice of ADN programs who wish to have this added mark of distinction that demonstrates college, program, and faculty commitment to quality and excellence for current and future students. The college administration and faculty remain committed to providing excellent nursing education.
