The Dallas Nursing Institute (DNI) is part of the group of ATI Schools and Colleges serving more than 9,000 students and 24 campuses across Arizona, Florida, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas. The ATI provides students with hands-on training in practical and essential fields like health care, automotive repair, welding, heating and air conditioning repair, and business technology. DNI’s aim is to advance the art and science of nursing through its vocational nursing courses and the offering of an associate degree in nursing. Well-qualified and dedicated faculty and staff equip students with the skills and knowledge needed in a successful medical career. Coupled with a strong staff, the school is accredited by the Accreditation Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) and holds approvals from a wide variety of other agencies in healthcare and education.
The vocational nursing program at DNI uses the latest technology and top-notch equipment to prepare students for a career as a licensed vocational nurse (LVN) or licensed practical nurse (LPN). These two categories of nurses provide basic bedside care under the supervision of registered nurses and physicians. Traditionally in the states of California and Texas, the term vocational nurse is used in place of “licensed practical” nurse, but they are essentially the same position with the same education (need to pass a test called the NCLEX-PN) and responsibilities (patient care and nursing procedures in hospitals, nursing homes, doctors’ offices, etc.). The cost of this program at DNI falls in at around $27,400.
The Associate Degree of Nursing Program at Dallas Nursing Institute (DNI) is a five-term program of study leading to an Associate of Applied Science Degree. This prepares students for the NCLEX-RN, the licensing exam for registered nurses, or RNs. The program design focuses on three roles required of RN’s by the Texas Board of Nursing: Provider of Care, Coordinator of Care, and Member of the Profession. Health promotion, disease prevention, and disease management are major concepts that are incorporated into each course. On the floor, LPN’s and RN’s have many similar responsibilities, but the RN’s role is a little more intense, as they have a longer period of schooling and are often called upon for more high-level decisions and tasks. As such, the route to becoming an RN at DNI is a little more intense as far as time in the classroom goes. This program cost is $44,260, but both paths at the nursing institute offer plenty of opportunities for financial aid.
