KCC Nursing Programs Receive Accreditation

Kankakee Community College Both the Associate’s Diploma in Nursing Program and the Licensed Practical Nursing Program received continuing accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Nursing Education at its March 2021 meeting.

The next evaluation visit for the two programs is scheduled for fall 2028.

KCC’s two-year registered nursing program accepts new students each fall and spring semester. It incorporates classroom lectures, clinical experiments and laboratory demonstrations. The program is designed to prepare students for work in hospital wards, as well as long-term care, home care, business and industry, outpatient clinics, public agencies, and physician offices.

The LPN program has a competitive registration process and accepts new students each fall. It incorporates classroom lectures, clinical experiments and laboratory demonstrations. The program is designed to prepare students for work in long-term care, business and industry, outpatient clinics, public agencies, and physician offices.

LPNs may also apply for an advanced placement in KCC’s registered nursing program.

KCC’s Licensed Practical Nursing Programs and Licensed Nursing Programs are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Nursing Education. Accredited programs must meet or exceed education quality standards and criteria as determined by ACEN. In Illinois, there are eight ACEN accredited LPN programs and 35 associate degree programs that they have accredited.
