  • About Edinboro Nursing

Edinboro University graduated its first class of two nursing students in 1974 following their completion of a rigorous four-year undergraduate program.  Since that time, over 1500 students have graduated from the baccalaureate nursing program at Edinboro University.  These graduates have included traditional pre-licensure nursing students and Second-Baccalaureate (Innovative) nursing students, as well as Registered Nurses (RNs) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), who came to Edinboro University to complete their baccalaureate nursing degree. Most recently, the BSN in Contemporary Nursing Issues for Foreign-Educated  Nurses has been added to the programs of study available through the Department of Nursing at Edinboro University. In addition, the Edinboro Nursing Department offers graduate nursing degrees in the Nurse Practitioner track and the Nurse Educator track through a consortium program with Clarion University. Nursing graduates from Edinboro University provide nursing care in healthcare venues across the United States and around the world. 

Edinboro Nursing was granted full approval from the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing in 1985.  Accreditation from the National League for Nursing was in place from 1986 until 2001.  In 2001, Edinboro Nursing was granted its initial accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).  In 2006, Edinboro Nursing was fully accredited by CCNE until 2016.
