CORPUS CHRISTI, Tx —
According to Del Mar College's website, The nursing programs have been ranked among the top 20 nursing programs in Texas.

Recently, two professional nursing organizations that rank programs across the country recognized the DMC department’s two key programs––Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) and Registered Nurse (RN)––as among the top 20 accredited programs available in Texas. PracticalNursing.org ranked the LVN program at #11 while RNCareers.org ranked the RN program at #19.

Del Mar College’s Nurse Education Department offers a Vocational Nurse Certificate or an Associate of Applied Science in Registered Nursing with the option of obtaining an Associate of Arts degree to facilitate students’ education for completion of a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from an upper-level nurse education program.

The department anticipates 33 more students to receive their pins and graduate from Del Mar College next week.

The pinning ceremony is scheduled Thursday, Aug. 15, beginning at 7 p.m. in Wolfe Recital Hall on the East Campus at Ayers and Kosar. Summer 2019 Commencement is Aug. 16 in Selena Auditorium at the American Bank Center.
