CACC adding second stand-alone nursing program at Childersburg campus


CHILDERSBURG, Ala. – The Coosa Valley School of Nursing at Central Alabama Community College (CACC) has announced that it will be introducing its second stand-alone Practical Nursing Program which will begin in January of next year at CACC’s Childersburg location.

The program will join the ongoing one on Prattville’s campus which started in January of 2022.

“It is with great excitement that the Coosa Valley School of Nursing is able to meet healthcare partner needs with the opening of its newest stand-alone Practical Nursing program at the Childersburg campus in January 2023,” Dr. Jennifer Steele, CACC Health Science Program Administrator, said.

With the program now fully accredited and approved for financial aid, students in the traditional nursing program will still be eligible to take their PN licensure exam after completion of their third nursing semester.

“The nursing program is experiencing an increase in applicants with each admissions cycle,” Dr. Steele explained. “Opening another nursing program and option will allow more students access to a nursing career. We strive to take advantage of every opportunity that allows us to grow, expand, and improve.”

“We are excited to be able to offer another stand-alone PN program on our Childersburg campus,” Jeff Lynn, President of CACC, added. “Our main goals in nursing are to serve patients and our area healthcare partners. The main focus of nursing education at CACC is to prepare excellent nurses that will care for the patients and families of the communities we serve.”
