The Nursing program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
Graduates are deemed eligible by the State of Hawaiʻi Board of Nursing to take the Licensed Practical Nurse or Registered Nurse examination and apply for licensure in the State of Hawaiʻi. The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) issues national, uniform requirements for licensure by exam or endorsement, renewals and reinstatement. These include proof of completion of an approved nursing education program, successful completion of the NCLEX exam, proficiency in English, and self-disclosure of misdemeanors, felonies and substance abuse.
However, each state’s Nursing Practice Act outlines its unique requirements. From state to state, license application fees, length of application process, renewal timelines and requirements, clinical hours served, continued education units (CEU), and temporary practice permits vary. Here is a link to certification and licensure information for all 50 States: https://nursinglicensemap.com/states/.
