Section II: Initial registration/initial accreditation and substantive change, and program discontinuance actions

 

Note: Prior to the beginning of 2021, all registered nursing education programs in New York State were accredited by the Board of Regents. In December 2020, the scope of the accreditation was changed to include only those nursing programs that identify the Board of Regents as its sole programmatic accrediting agency. After January 15, 2021, those programs that identified the ACEN and/or the CCNE as the programmatic accrediting agency could choose to also have the BOR accreditation under the current accreditation term. Such BOR accreditation would not be renewed at the end of the current accreditation term.

*indicates programs that have chosen to have the Board of Regents Accreditation until the existing term expires.
