The Dakota Nursing program at Dakota College in Bottineau last week named 36 associate applied science nursing graduates from its programs located on the Minot, Valley City and Bottineau campuses. There were 10 graduates in the Valley City class.

Dakota College at Bottineau’s practicum is a member of the Dakota Nursing Program, a consortium of four community college nursing departments that work together to offer a common curriculum for a Practical Nursing Certificate and an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing. The program aims to meet North Dakota’s growing need for nurses by offering these degree programs on the campuses of four two-year colleges and numerous satellite sites across the state.
The program works with medical centers across the state where students gain hands-on experience. Nurses who graduate in applied science will pass their National Council Licensure Examination exam to obtain a license to begin their career as a registered nurse.
