A nurse prepares for her shift.

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.

Trimesters Announcement:

Dear students, DACC Nursing program is on a trimester scheduling. The Nursing Program schedule is slightly different than the DACC/NMSU college semesters schedule. All DACC nursing program students will be on a trimester schedule (spring, summer and fall), there is no break for summer.

See the PDF that details the trimester schedule (can also be found under the "Getting Started" tab to the right).

Note that the  DACC and NMSU college’s will not be on trimester scheduling, and courses offered at both of these locations e.g. English, Math will still follow the traditional 15 instructional week semester.

DACC financial aide is aware of trimester implementation, and there shouldn’t be any problems with financial aid awards. You can contact financial aide services to set up appointment to discuss further @

We look forward to expanding and growing the nursing program, as the trimester scheduling will allow an additional cohort of students admitted every year.

If trimester scheduling changes due to COVID or other issues outside of our control, we will let you know as soon as possible.
