Wallace Community College Honors Summer 2014 Nursing Students in Pinning Ceremony

Dothan, Ala -- Wallace Community College – Dothan recently conferred credentials upon summer 2014 graduates of the associate degree and practical nursing programs at Cherry Hall on the Wallace campus.

The graduates, who represent students from the Sparks Campus in Eufaula and the Wallace Campus in Dothan, will help fill employment gaps in the local health-care workforce.

Since the first graduating class in 1953, the practical nursing program has produced almost 3,700 graduates. The associate degree program has graduated over 3,800 nurses since the initial 1971 class.

Wallace continues to enroll large numbers of prospective allied health and nursing students each semester. More than 42% of the College’s total student enrollment is registered in health sciences or pre-health sciences courses. The nursing programs are approved by the Alabama Board of Nursing and are fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). The next ACEN review will be in 2015 for ADN and 2016 for PN.
