DACC Nursing Program Provides Answers in Accreditation Loss
LAS CRUCES — Doña Ana Community College school officials reached out to students and parents by sending letters detailing what the college's un-accredited nursing program means for them.
As News Channel 9 reported, the reason for the accreditation loss was a result of being understaffed. The college only had six full-time nurses teaching 109 students, which was at half of the requirement.
DACC released a list of frequently asked questions with answers on what current students should be aware of.
Among the FAQ's, the college clarified that accreditation was not required for proper licensing tests and that students graduating from the program should not see any difference in employment opportunites because most practices dont require students come from accredited programs.
The college also claimed most community college nursing programs dont have national accreditation because of its costs.
