Lone Star College Nursing Program Gets Accreditation Opening More Opportunities For Students



Lone Star College has had its Bachelor of Science in Nursing program approved by the Accreditation Commission for Nursing Education, opening up more opportunities for students of the program.

“Lone Star College has provided the Accreditation Commission for Nursing Education with data to determine whether our program meets their strict standards,” said Stephen C. Head, Ph.D., Chancellor of LSC, in a college press release. “They also looked at students’ progress in obtaining their degrees and the percentage of students who complete them.”

Lone Star College recently held a ceremony for its first batch of BSN program graduates, at which 24 Bachelor of Nursing degrees were awarded, the press release said.

While ACEN accreditation is not required, it does provide additional benefits to students, including more financial aid opportunities and easier credit transfer.

“This accreditation ensures that instructors use appropriate teaching methods, that courses have the appropriate content, and that Lone Star College meets the needs of nursing students,” said Head.
