ACEN Accreditation Manual


The Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) supports the interests of nursing education, nursing 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 have been found to meet or exceed standards and criteria for educational quality. 

The ACEN Accreditation Manual is comprised of three sections and a glossary.
Each section is available separately. A link to a print-friendly PDF file is located within the sections.
