Accreditation is a type of peer-reviewed endorsement that schools use to let students know that their program offers a legitimate education that is officially recognized by the New York State Education Department and/or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
It is important to select a school and a program that are accredited so that are eligible to be licensed in your field of study once you graduate. There are various accreditation agencies, nearly every health occupation has one. All of the schools and programs listed on the Health Careers website are accredited. If you are considering a program which is not listed on the website, please verify that both the school and program are accredited.
