Nursing Programs Receive Reaccreditation from ACEN

Aiken Technical College’s (ATC) nursing programs have received the maximum allowable accredtiation (8 years) by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), the nationally recognized accrediting authority for nursing education programs.

The reaccreditation demonstrates that the College’s Associate in Applied Science Nursing (ADN) and Diploma in Applied Science Practical Nursing (LPN) programs meet the highest educational standards, said Dr. Hannah Williams, ATC dean of nursing.

"The attainment of national accreditation from ACEN is extremely important because it helps ensure the delivery of quality nursing education. This includes professional standards and the correct use of teaching methodologies that will produce nursing graduates that both meet and exceed the expectations and needs of potential employers, patient populations, and community needs through the display of excellent nursing knowledge and skills,” said Williams.

ACEN regularly reviews accredited programs to ensure the programs continue to meet standards and are adequately preparing students for the nursing field. This process required a self-study report submitted by the Nursing Division followed by a site visit.

“This is an outstanding outcome for the nursing programs and indicates the College is continuing to fulfill its mission of providing educational and workforce development opportunities,” said ATC President Dr. Forest Mahan. “Everyone in the Nursing Division is to be commended for their efforts and for providing our nursing students with learning experiences that prepare them to become successful nurses.”
