Hondros College of Nursing today announced that it has received official notification of institutional accreditation by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES).
HCN educates nurses at five Ohio campuses in Cincinnati/West Chester, Cleveland/Independence, Columbus/Westerville, Dayton/Fairborn and Toledo/Maumee, where students can earn a Practical Nursing Diploma and an Associate Degree in Nursing. Additionally, registered nurses in Ohio and other states can earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree through the online RN-BSN completion program.
ABHES has been a leader in health education accreditation for more than 40 years and is nationally recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a private, non-profit, independent accrediting agency.
“Hondros College of Nursing and ABHES are a great fit because ABHES has a long history and an excellent reputation in higher education and healthcare, focused on healthcare professions, such as nursing, is respected in the healthcare arena and promotes educational excellence,” said Tony Mediate, chief executive officer of Hondros College of Nursing.
As a result of its new ABHES accreditation, Hondros College of Nursing will voluntarily discontinue its accreditation with the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS).
“We will continue to seek additional accreditation that is a good fit for the college and our students,” added Mediate. “At HCN, we strive for excellence in all programs as we prepare our students for rewarding, successful careers after graduation.”
