Owensboro, KY - The Daymar College Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program has been notified by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) of qualification for candidacy for accreditation. The achievement marks continued progress toward accreditation for Daymar’s ADN program, which is currently offered at the college’s Owensboro campus.
“This is a major milestone on the road to achieving NLNAC accreditation,” said Dr. Michael Wayne Rager, director of nursing education at Daymar’s Owensboro campus. “It indicates that our ADN program has met or exceeded the NLNAC’s requirements for the next phase of consideration. The high standards we’ve set for our ADN program have been recognized by the NLNAC as evidence that we’re eligible to move forward in the accreditation process. I’m very proud of our program, our faculty and our students.” Individuals who earn an ADN can qualify to work as professional nurses in hospitals, healthcare providers’ offices, nursing facilities and home healthcare centers. The NLNAC’s accreditation process requires schools to meet a variety of strict requirements and graduate their first class of ADN students before accreditation is granted. High levels of opportunity for student learning and achievement are emphasized.
Dr. Rager added, “This is great news for Daymar’s ADN program, and it’s great news for Owensboro residents who may be considering a nursing career. I’d like to extend my personal invitation to the Owensboro community to stop by and see what we have to offer!”
