Dodge City Community College offers a traditional two year Associate of Applied Science in Nursing Degree with a practical nurse certification option after the first year. Curriculum includes theory and clinical experience in patient care in a variety of settings. Students accepted into the traditional day program attend classes on campus and participate in clinicals during the week. All students who complete the ADN curriculum are eligible to apply for licensure. DC3 is nationally accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and approved by the Kansas State Board of Nursing.
Due to the limited enrollment, students must apply to the Department of Nursing Education in addition to the college. Nursing applications are accepted September 1st – March 1st for the following fall semester.
Please contact the Department of Nurse Education or your advisor concerning nursing requirements and admissions policies. Additional information including admission requirements can be found at https://conqs.dc3.edu/ICS/Nursing.
Students with current PN licensure and one year of practical experience may apply to the program to complete the final two semesters of the Associate of Applied Science in Nursing Degree (all admission requirements must be met).
Both nursing programs start in the fall semester.
