Dona Ana nursing program pushes forward with reaccreditation

Monday, August 4, 2014 - 7:14pm

Dona Ana Community College educators say they've completed all of the requirements for re-accreditation.

The college has been trying to regain accreditation status since they lost it two years ago. They say they're on track to become accredited as early as next year through the Accreditation Commission for Education and Nursing. With national accreditation, students will be able to work at hospitals which require it.

Educators take us through some of the requirements they've had to fulfil.

"And we also had to hire the amount of people, the registered nurses educators that we have. And right now we have six which is what was called for and right now we're seeking a seventh,” Eddie Binder, Spokesperson for DACC said.

Accreditation is not required for a school nursing program.
