It is important to select a program to attend that carries a Regional Accreditation. All State University, Junior Colleges and Community Colleges carry a Regional Accreditation. Some Private Universities/Colleges do as well.
This will help to avoid dead-ends and disappointment later if you want to continue on to a BSN and/or Advance Practice Degrees.
Degrees from a school without a National Accreditation may not transfer to the higher accredited regional schools.
