Daymar College’s Associate of Science Degree Nursing (ADN) program, offered at Daymar College’s Owensboro campus, has received full approval from the Kentucky Board of Nursing. The ADN Nursing program has been found to meet all requirements as outlined by Kentucky regulations, and the approval of the program permits the ongoing admission of students. Graduation from a U.S. Board of Nursing approved program of nursing is required for a student to be eligible to take the NCLEX examination for registered nurses.
During a routine, three-day site visit by the Kentucky Board of Nursing’s education consultant, it was found that Daymar College’s Associate of Science degree in Nursing program was without deficiency, and the college was commended for their close adherence to admission criteria and keen attention to criminal background checks for prospective students. Further, the nursing educational consultant commented that Dr. Michael Wayne Rager, Director of Nursing at Daymar College, has the highest level of commitment to the success of the Associate of Science in Nursing program and its students.
“This is indeed a major accomplishment and solidifies the integrity of our program,” Dr. Rager said. “It indicates that our unwavering efforts to providing students with a rigorous but caring learning environment has been achieved. The Kentucky Board of Nursing has formally recognized the high standards the faculty and I have for our ADN program. I’m very proud of our program, our students, faculty and staff.
“This is also a needed achievement as we continue the process toward NLNAC accreditation,” Dr. Rager said. “Since joining Daymar College, I have encountered endless support as to my strategic plan for further development of the program and anticipate further growth of not only the ADN program, but also the growth within our 100% online RN-to-BSN program and State Registered Nurse Aide training. I can honestly say that I love my job and am proud to be an ambassador for Daymar College.”
Dr. Rager added, “This is great news for Daymar’s ADN program, and it’s great news for residents who may be considering a career in nursing. I’d like to extend my personal invitation to everyone to stop by our campus and learn how we can assist you in achieving success. We change lives, one person at a time.”
