Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) Associate Degree Nursing program has been granted continued accreditation by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC). Accreditation will continue until the next visit scheduled for fall 2015.

“(NLNAC) accreditation shows that a program has met certain standards,” said GNTC’s Program Director of Associate Degree Nursing Ose Martinez.

“It shows the public and prospective students that the education offered is of good quality.”

“I am proud of the Associate Degree Nursing faculty and all the hard work they do each day,” added GNTC’s Dean of Academic Affairs Denise Grant.

The National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission is responsible for the specialized accreditation of nursing education programs (clinical doctorate, master’s, baccalaureate, associate, diploma, and practical programs). The Commission has authority and accountability for carrying out the responsibilities inherent in the application of standards and criteria, accreditation processes, and the affairs, management, policy-making, and general administration of the NLNAC. The NLNAC is nationally recognized as a specialized accrediting agency for both post-secondary and higher degree programs in nursing education.
