American Sentinel’s bachelors and masters nursing programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

The University’s CCNE-accredited RN to BSN degree program is a post-licensure nursing program.

Some states may offer advanced nursing licensure opportunities beyond RN, and individuals obtaining such advanced licensures may be able to secure employment in a position other than RN. Our RN to BSN degree program is not designed to enable graduates to obtain any such form of advanced licensure in any state, or to secure any form of employment that might require such advanced licensure.

Some states also may require that any person interested in serving as nursing faculty at a postsecondary institution within the state hold a BSN or other advanced nursing degree. Our RN to BSN degree program is not designed to enable graduates to obtain a nursing faculty position in any state.
