A nursing recognition ceremony will take place Thursday, May 16 at 2:00 PM in the Mary Miller Center Gymnasium at Danville Area Community College. Twenty-nine students will participate in this special ceremony.
The Graduates selected Nursing Faculty, Dr. Nicole Carter to speak during the ceremony. The class response will be presented by Emily Longest. This student was chosen by the nursing program faculty.
Nursing faculty members at DACC include Nicole Carter, DNP, RN; Shannon Childers, MSN, RN; Joanna Commons, DNP, RN; Erica Johnson, MSN, RN; Angela Shaffer, MSN, RN; and Cathy Jo Sroufek, MSN, RN. Mary S. Skinner MSN, RN, is Director of Nursing Education at the college.
DACC is a Ladder program that consists of two levels. Level I students are entry level nursing students. These students are qualified to take the PN-NCLEX after completion of two semesters. This will license them as LPNs and they can work at this level while completing their Associate Degree. Level II students are either continuing their nursing education from Level I, or are currently LPNs in the community who want to complete an Associate Degree of Nursing (ADN). Level II students take a State Board Exam for licensure as Registered Nurses (RN) later this summer. Students who successfully complete Level I will receive a Certificate and students who successfully complete Level II will receive an Associate Degree in Science. Both levels of graduates will participate in the Commencement ceremony at 7 p.m. on Friday in Mary Miller Center Gymnasium.
