The ACEN is pleased to provide ACEN-accredited nursing programs with the ACEN Accreditation Seal. As a mark of quality, the ACEN seal conveys to your current and prospective students as well as your communities of interest a commitment to the national standards for nursing programs as well as a focus on continuous improvement within the nursing program. We encourage you to proudly display your program’s accredited status by utilizing the seal on the nursing program’s website and in program materials. To protect the ACEN brand, the following guidelines apply to all public representations of the ACEN.
