The Prelicensure BSN is a new program that has received provisional accreditation from the NJ Board of Nursing, a status issued to all new programs until they become eligible for full accreditation. Eligibility for full accreditation with the NJ Board of Nursing occurs after the first cohort graduates and achieves a preestablished pass rate on the NCLEX-RN exam.

Kean University’s RN-BSN and MSN programs are fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). The Prelicensure BSN program will also undergo this additional voluntary accreditation process once eligible.
