Accelerated Nursing School Accreditations

When choosing a nursing school, it’s important to ensure that both the learning institution and program you select are accredited. If you complete a non-accredited program, you may not be allowed to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN®), which nursing students must pass to become a licensed, practicing nurse.

Averett University and its School of Nursing are accredited and approved nationally, regionally and in the state of Virginia. These credentials are proof of our commitment to excellence in nursing education.

Pursuing your Bachelor of Science in Nursing through our accredited accelerated nursing program ensures you’re earning a degree that will be recognized by top health care providers in Virginia and across the United States. Other higher learning institutions will also accept your BSN should you ever decide to pursue a graduate-level nursing education.
