Acceptable RNFA Programs

CRNFA candidates must have completed an acceptable RNFA program to apply to take the exam. 

The following RNFA programs have met specific criteria and are acceptable programs for CRNFA eligibility. Acceptable programs for CRNFA eligibility are those programs that are in compliance with the RNFA program criteria. The program acceptance plan began in June 1998. Any formal RNFA programs taken before that date will be allowed for CRNFA eligibility as long as a certificate of completion of that program can be provided.

None of the programs below are affiliated with CCI, so they may have separate eligibility requirements for enrollment. Please note, the following list is subject to change without notice. Links have been provided where available. All programs are affiliated with an accredited school of nursing. If you need more information on their accreditation status, please contact the school directly.

A copy of a certificate of completion of the program must accompany the CRNFA application.
