Central Alabama Community College was created on February 23, 1989 by the Alabama State Board of Education. The CACC is the result of the combination of Alexander City State Junior College (ACSJC) and Nunnelley State Technical College (NSTC). Today, it is located in Alexander City, Alabama.
At CACC, the Nursing Programs have met with approval. These programs are classified into 2 categories: in the licensed practical nursing program (LPN) students receive upon completion, an Associate in Applied Science degree; in the associate degree nursing program (AND), a certificate is given after completing it. However, the first two semesters of both programs are similar.
The National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission and the Alabama Board of Nursing have approved and accredited the CACC Associate Degree Nursing Program. Furthermore, all agencies used as clinic sites are also authorized by the corresponding organizations. Jim Preuitt Nursing and Allied Health Building on the Childersburg Campus house the CACC nursing programs.
