Practical Nursing Program at Lakeshore Technical College Receives Continuing Accreditation

More than 90% of graduates pass their licensure exam.




The Board of Commissioners for the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) granted continuing accreditation to the practical nursing program at Lakeshore Technical College. The board also scheduled the next evaluation visit for fall 2031. 

The ACEN board recognized the exam pass rate among Lakeshore’s practical nursing graduates over the last three years as an “outstanding achievement.” More than 90% of Lakeshore’s graduates passed their licensing exam during this time.

“The outstanding pass rate among our students is a direct result of our quality instructors and the hard work our students invest in their education,” said Lakeshore President Dr. Paul Carlsen. “Getting our students workforce-ready to put their knowledge and compassion into action is what we do for our community.”
