The faculty of the ASN Program of Western Kentucky University ascribe to the University's commitment to produce nationally and globally competitive graduates and to provide continuing education opportunities for lifelong learning to our constituents. The mission of the ASN Program is to provide the educational resources to meet the needs for registered nurses. The program prepares the graduate as a generalist to give nursing care in a variety of health care settings and provides the knowledge base for career mobility.
The nursing program has been accredited since 1966 by Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN)( formerly called the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC)), 3343 Peachtree Rd NE Suite 500, Atlanta, GA 30326 (1-404-975-5000, http://www.acenursing.org/). The program also has full approval from the Kentucky Board of Nursing, which determines candidate eligibility for licensure. Applicants for licensure must provide necessary information regarding drug, alcohol, or conviction history for determination of licensure eligibility. The Kentucky Board of Nursing has the power to deny a nursing graduate the right to take the NLCEX-RN.
