DACC Signs Historic Agreement with ISU Mennonite College of Nursing

DANVILLE – Officials at Danville Area Community College are pleased to announce two historic new opportunities for students in DACC’s Associate degree in Nursing program.

The presidents of DACC and Illinois State University met to sign two Memoranda of Understanding allowing students in DACC’s nursing program to seamlessly transfer to the ISU Mennonite College of Nursing.

The first agreement, a Dual Enrollment plan, will facilitate concurrent enrollment of DACC’s ADN students into ISU’s RN to BSN program. DACC students must first have cojmpleted a set of prerequisite courses to the satisfaction of ISU’s admission requirements.

The second agreement, a Pathway program, will facilitate transfer of students from DACC’s ADN program to ISU’s RN to BSN program. These students will enjoy pre-admission and a smooth transfer into ISU’s Mennonite College of Nursing upon completion of their ADN degree.

Following brief remarks from DACC President Stephen Nacco, DACC Nursing Director Mary “Mimi” Skinner, Mennonite College of Nursing Dean Judy Neubrander, and ISU President Larry Dietz, the two agreements were signed making the partnership official.

DACC’s Director of Nursing, Mary “Mimi” Skinner said, “This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to continue their education and seamlessly transfer to one of the premier nursing schools in the country. We thank ISU for their partnership.”
