Rock Valley College

ACEN Accreditation

Rock Valley College’s (RVC) Associate Degree Registered Nursing (RN) Program has recently been accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). 

While being approved by the Illinois State Board of Nursing since 1967, the new accreditation from ACEN is a new (higher) level of distinction for the RVC RN Program that comes after six years of work by the faculty and staff.

Some of the benefits of ACEN accreditation include:

  • A higher level of distinction from other RN Programs that are not ACEN accredited
  • Greater transferability to in-state and out-of-state Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Programs
  • A nationally recognized achievement that employers often seek when hiring RN candidates
