Credentials Available in Nursing

Registered nursing requires the completion of an accredited program and a board exam. Students completing an Associate's Degree in Nursing (ADN) and a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing (BSN) sit for the same exam to earn their registered nursing license (RN). Many programs require that students earn their nursing assistant credentials (NAC, or more commonly known as CNA, or Certified Nursing Assistant) prior to completing their nursing program. Click on the links below to find programs in Washington State offering Certified Nursing Assistant (NAC), Licensed Practical Nursing (PN), and Registered Nursing (RN) programs through the completion of an accredited program.
