Accreditation

ACCREDITATION AND APPROVALS
Felbry College School of Nursing takes pride in the quality of its programs. To this end, we have sought and achieved Program accreditation and approvals.  Which signify that a degree from Felbry is a state and nationally-recognized certification to practice nursing.

Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS)
Felbry College School of Nursing is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools to award diploma in Practical Nursing Program and LPN-RN Program.

Accrediting Council for Independent Career Colleges and Schools (ACICS) is no longer recognized by the Department of Education. The college has 18 months following the loss of the Department-recognized accrediting agency, to find a new accrediting agency to maintain eligibility to receive funds under Title IV, HEA programs, and that if the institution does not obtain accreditation within that 18 month period, the institution would no longer be eligible to receive funds under Title IV, HEA programs. The date of expiration of the 18 month period is June 2018.

The College is currently seeking accreditation and is in process with Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) and Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).

Any student at the institution who has a complaint relating to Title IV eligibility or administration, the quality of education received at the institution, or otherwise relating to the accreditation standards of the former accrediting agency, ACICS, can submit that complaint to the institution and/ or to any of the following:
