What is a substantive change?
A substantive change is a significant modification or expansion of the nature and scope of a nursing program and/or nursing education. The purpose of the substantive change policy and process is to keep the ACEN informed of changes in the program or governing organization between accreditation visits.
Policy #14 Reporting Substantive Change
Review Policy #14 Reporting Substantive Change in the ACEN Accreditation Manual for important information about ACEN requirements and expectations.
