VCSU has an agreement with the Dakota College at Bottineau through the Dakota Nursing Program that allows students to earn their Practical Nurse (PN), Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) or Registered Nurse (RN) titles right here in Valley City. Under the program, VCSU's pre-nursing curriculum provides the coursework for these students to meet their general education requirements, and they receive their classroom instruction in nursing via Interactive Video Network (IVN) from Dakota College at Bottineau. Clinical practice opportunities for these students are available through healthcare providers located in Valley City including the Sheyenne Care Center and Mercy Hospital.
Students who are interested in a career in nursing have many paths available to them.

To better understand these options, contact us to help you choose the path that is right for you.
