The ADN/RN program at DACC offers multi-exit ladder options in which the student could exit after the first level of nursing education earning a Practical Nursing Certificate, eligible to take the licensure exam for Practical Nursing (NCLEX-PN) OR the student may continue to the second level and obtain an Associate Degree in Nursing/Registered Nursing.
The essence of the ladder associate degree nursing curriculum is to train qualified graduates to perform the current everyday jobs of the Practical Nurse (Level I) and (Level II) which is Registered Nurse (RN). Upon completion of both levels, graduates are eligible to take the licensure exam for Registered Nursing (NCLEX-RN) and obtain state licensure.
The nursing program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
