ACEN Accreditation (NTC)

The Associate Degree (AS/RN) and Diploma (PN) programs are currently in candidacy status with ACEN, an esteemed national accreditation agency. An update on our accreditation process and plan:

  • Accreditation is a formal method to indicate that programs have met prescribed educational parameters. Activities include self-evaluation, measuring curriculum against standards, and a focus on quality improvement.
  • NTC’s nursing programs currently engage in quality improvement activities to prepare for application for national accreditation candidacy. It is our goal to submit our self-study to the Accreditation Commission for Education (ACEN) in the next two years (prior to December 2016).
  • The program is in candidacy with ACEN. The program has been approved by the Minnesota Board of Nursing. Prospective students have the opportunity to determine if the program meets their needs.

Obtaining the national accreditation designation will be an affirmation of high standards of nursing education.
