Bylaws

The bylaws of the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) are composed of two parts. Part A deals with all bylaws matters, except the operational aspects of accreditation matters that have been included in Part B, and Part A remains under the sole authority of the National League for Nursing as the sole member. Part B of ACEN’s bylaws is limited exclusively to the operational aspects of accreditation as required by 34 USC 602.14 (requirements for “separate and independent accreditation functions”), which the National League for Nursing has delegated authority to ACEN to autonomously revise and amend. Nothing in Part B of these bylaws can conflict with Part A of these bylaws or the Certificate of Incorporation.
