Why Attend an Accredited College?
Why is it important that you attend an accredited college, and receive an accredited degree? One, it affirms that you have received a quality education. Second, the process of transferring credits to another accredited college is made smoother. And third, employers often recognize accredited colleges and prefer to hire those graduates.
P.I.T.’s accreditation enables graduates of our Practical Nursing and Physical Therapist Assistant programs to take exams required for state licensure. Holding a degree or certificate from an accredited school also allows students to attend other accredited schools if they choose to pursue a bachelor’s degree.
