Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN)

The Emily Griffith Technical College Practical Nursing Program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN)

ACEN supports the interests of nursing education, nursing practice, and the public by the functions of accreditation. Accreditation is a voluntary, peer-review, self-regulatory process by which non-governmental associations recognize educational institutions or programs that have been found to meet or exceed standards and criteria for educational quality. Accreditation also assists in the further improvement of the institutions or programs as related to resources invested, processes followed, and results achieved. The monitoring of certificate, diploma, and degree offerings is tied closely to state examination and licensing rules and to the oversight of preparation for work in the profession.

From our teachers...

I started the Phlebotomy Program here 15 years ago. Phlebotomy is a great field that can open many doors; new opportunities can arise depending on how far a student wants to extend themselves.
