EIU Bachelor of Science in Nursing

Accreditation Information


Baccalaureate nursing programs are accredtited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE)

It is important to become licensed in the state you choose to practice. Many states are a part of a Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC). If you obtain a license in an NLC state, you may practice in any state that is also an NLC state. Illinois IS NOT an NLC state and you must obtain a license to practice in other states if your primary license is in Illinois.

Admission into a program leading to licensure does not guarantee that students will obtain a license. Registered nurses must pass the National Council of State Boards of Nursing Exam (NCLEX) to practice as a registered nurse. Licensure requirements are set by state boards of nursing in each state and can change at any time. Obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree at EIU does not guarantee the ability to obtain a license in every state.
