International College of Health Sciences

Candidate for ACEN Accreditation

accreditation

International College of Health Sciences is thrilled to announce our application for candidacy has been granted for the nursing program for accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). The ACEN supports the interests of nursing education, nursing practice, and the public by the functions of accreditation.

This accreditation will assist in the further improvement of our programs as it relates to resources invested, processes followed, and results achieved. The monitoring of certificate, diploma, and degree offerings is tied closely to state examination and licensing rules and to the oversight of preparation for work in the profession.

Our values align with the ACEN since the singular function of nursing is the improvement of the human condition. Postsecondary and higher education provide for the development of learners’ ability to think for themselves, master analytical problem-solving, apply scientific knowledge, and make value judgments within the context of the specific program type. Thus, education requires a broad academic orientation and depth and breadth of intellectual skills translated into competencies so as to fulfill nursing’s functions in all types of nursing.

This Nursing Program Works Well For Chiropractors/Foreign Educated Doctors

If you are a Chiropractor, Paramedic, or Foreign Educated Medical Doctor this nursing program may be well suited for you. Students follow the same course of study as other nursing students at ICHS, but are given credit for some courses taken abroad. Training is validated by performance on "challenge examinations."

The program is seen as one solution to the state's nursing shortage. Many of the foreign-educated physicians who have entered the nursing program were already working in hospitals as medical assistants, nurse assistants, or phlebotomists. Most of those enrolled were trained as physicians in Cuba, Haiti, Russia, or the European block.
