Welcome to the Nursing program at Doña Ana Community College (DACC). We are pleased that you have chosen to study nursing and are delighted to have the opportunity to assist in achieving the academic and personal goals of each student. This is an exciting and challenging time to prepare for entry into the practice of nursing. Students are encouraged to work diligently toward their goals to find personal and career fulfillment.

The Nursing program at DACC affords students the opportunity to become Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN), Registered Nurses (RN), and members of a respected and rewarding profession. Nursing is a dynamic and exciting discipline offering not only the rewarding experiences of helping others achieve their health care goals, but also enabling the nurse to become a part of the rapidly advancing health delivery system of the future.

To ensure timely graduation with an Associate Degree in Nursing, the program is currently designed for full time attendance over a two year period in order to complete all nursing coursework and requirements. Program coursework will include theory, laboratory and clinical learning experiences. Nursing classes are delivered face to face on the DACC Central Campus with clinical participation completed in the surrounding communities. For additional information on the program structure and requirements, please contact the Nursing program.
