New Grant Awarded through February 2027
CNI College is honored to announce continued accreditation from the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES). Accreditation through the ABHES is comprised of an in-depth review of CNI College’s application, self-evaluation, ABHES on-site visit reports, the school’s response to reports, and CNI College’s financial history. The ABHES Commission evaluates and discusses each applicant before awarding accreditation status. CNI is pleased with being awarded the six-year grant of accreditation, the most ABHES will award to an institution.
“This is outstanding news!” said Jim Buffington, President of CNI College. “I am so proud of the CNI College Staff who have worked so hard together as a team to provide excellence at every opportunity. Being awarded this six-year grant is like winning the Gold Medal of Accreditation!”
