What is the difference between the “Accrediting Body” and “Accreditation” categories on the nursing education program comparison website?

The “Accrediting Body” category identifies the specific accrediting agency. The “Accreditation” category indicates the status applied to each nursing education program by the Florida Board of Nursing to indicate whether the program has specialized nursing accreditation, other national or regional educational accreditation, or no accreditation. Nursing education programs may have multiple listings under both categories.
