ACC Nursing Faculty were recognized by the Travis County Commissioners Court Tuesday, May 9, in honor of National Nurses Week, May 6-12, 2023.

The court presented ACC Nursing faculty with a special proclamation, and Dr. Nina Almasy, our dean of Health Sciences, had an opportunity to share a few remarks on behalf of the college. 

“We are grateful to Judge Brown and the Travis County Commissioners for this significant proclamation, recognizing the incredible work of all nurses. It’s an honor to represent ACC Nursing,” says Almasy. “As the largest healthcare workforce segment, nurses play a vital role in the health of our communities and the healthcare system as a whole. ACC is committed to preparing compassionate and competent nurses of the future and serving our patients in the region.”

National Nurses Week celebrates nurses for their service and dedication to caring for others and improving the health of patients.

ACC provides a full nursing career pathway, from the fast track certified nurse aide (CNA) (currently offered at a  50 percent discount as part of the college’s fast-track training programs), to an advanced certificate in vocational nursing (LVN) or an associate degree in professional nursing to become an RN. The college also offers a pathway toward a bachelor’s degree in nursing through the RN-to-BSN program.
