This page provides an overview of how RCoN’s curriculum meets educational requirements for professional licensing in various states. As of July 1, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education implemented new Regulation 34 CFR 668.43 (a) (5) (v) that requires professional nursing programs to provide:
- a list of all states/jurisdictions where the institution’s curriculum meets state educational requirements for professional licensure or certification,
- a list of all states/jurisdictions where the institution’s curriculum does not meet state educational requirements for professional licensure or certification, and
- a list of all states/jurisdictions where the institution has not made a determination of whether the curriculum meets educational requirements.
Disclaimer: This information, which is fluid and ever-evolving, has been gathered from a variety of sources. Although RCoN has made every effort to provide complete, accurate and up-to-date information, RCoN cannot guarantee the completeness and accuracy of this information.
