I'm an adult, but I didn't finish high school. Can I still enroll at the DATC?

Enrollment at the DATC for adults is limited to those who have a high school diploma or equivalent. Students who are still of high school age, of course, do not need a diploma.

Adults who need to prepare for the GED, or want to pursue an adult diploma, can contact the Davis District Adult Education program. Information about this program is available at 801-402-0720

What are the 'admissions assessments'?

How long will it take to finish my training?
The length of each program is based on the skills that you’ll need to learn to succeed in your chosen career. You can find the length of your program by going to the Program Page and selecting your program from the list. You’ll find the number of hours you’ll need to complete as well as an estimate of the number of months it will take you to finish the work, based on full-time enrollment.
What about attendance and grades?
Each program at the DATC has a written orientation which includes information about attendance and grade expectations and requirements for that particular program. If you have questions about these expectations and requirements, please talk to your instructor.
What if I need to take a break from my training?
We recognize that students may need a little time off during their training. The staff in Student Services will be happy to assist you in taking advantage of the ‘Leave of Absence’ policy. Please feel free to drop in during normal business hours to find out more or you can read the policy
Are there any holidays from school?
There are several non-school days during the year. These dates can be found on the school calendar.
I have credit from another school that I’d like to transfer in. What should I do?
In general, you will need to have your transcripts and academic records evaluated by a member of our faculty so that they can decide what the DATC will be able to accept. Click here for full details on the Transfer of Credit policy.
Will the courses I take at the DATC count for credit at other colleges?
The decision to accept credit is always decided by the receiving institution. However, many of our programs have formal articulation agreements with local colleges. Your instructor(s) will be able to provide you with details specific to your program of study.
How can I get a transcript of my course work at the DATC?

You may obtain a copy of your transcript, by completing the ‘Transcript Request Form’ which is found at the bottom of the records page.

How can I get copies of other academic records such as verification of enrollment?

Do you have a library?
The DATC library is located directly across from Student Services and provides a wide variety of electronic resources including full text academic articles and internet access. There is no cost to students to access these resources in the library.
When I’ve completed my training, what do I have to do?
If you’re ready to leave the DATC, please come to Student Services to officially withdraw. If you have completed your program and you’re ready to graduate, we will assist you in completing your graduation paperwork so that you can receive your certificate as well as an invitation to attend the graduation ceremony.
What is 'course-based'?
Course-based means that you purchase a course and have a set period of time to complete it. When you purchase the course you will set a schedule in the classroom which will reserve space for you to work on the course. The end date for the course will be calculated based on the schedule you select. In addition, your attendance will be tracked. Different courses may have different requirements for attendance, so it is important that you meet with your instructor at the beginning of each new course. The course curriculum will also state the attendance requirement.
How long will I have to finish my course?

We calculate the course end-date by dividing the length of the course by the number of hours you are scheduled (taking into account weekends, holidays and other non-school days). The end date will be printed on your schedule and is available to your instructor. Based on this calculation, if you sign up for a 90 hour course and have a 12-hour-per-week schedule, you will have 7.5 weeks (90 hours divided by 12 hours-per-week) to complete the course.

What if I want to enroll for less than 12 hours per week?

If you are a "certificate seeking" student, you must schedule a minimum of 12 hours-per-week and your schedule will be made up of three hour blocks (morning, afternoon, evening). You may select any combination of blocks which suits your individual situation. You can enroll for more than 12 hours-per-week if you would prefer. Once you have selected a schedule for a particular class, you may not change it, so please choose carefully.

Students who are not "certificate seeking" may enroll for as few as six hours per week.

In order to be considered a half-time student, you must be enrolled for at least 12 hours-per-week. If you want to be considered full-time, you'll need to be enrolled at least 24-hours-week. 

It is important to note, however, that many sponsors require that students maintain full-time status.

How am I charged for the class?

When you sign up for the course, you'll be expected to pay the full cost of the course up-front. To find the cost for the course, go to the web page for your program. Click on the "Tuition and Fees" tab and then click "Details". You'll find up-to-date cost information including the tuition and fees for all of the courses.

What happens if I drop the course?

If you drop a course during the first five school days and have not submitted any work to be entered into your student record, you are eligible for a complete withdrawal from the course and a full refund of the course tuition and fees. 

After the fifth day, you are committed to the class and are no longer eligible for either withdrawal or refund. Similarly, once you submit work that is entered into your student record, you are no longer eligible for withdrawal or refund.

When do I go to class?

During the time which you are scheduled to attend. If you occasionally need to attend at a different time - to make up some missed work, for example - you should discuss that with your instructor.

Do I have to attend class?

Your attendance will be tracked. When you go to class, you'll clock in and out on the student station near the door. Your clock-ins will be compared against your schedule to calculate an attendance percentage. Check with your instructor (and sponsor if you have one) to find out what the attendance requirements are for your program.

What happens if I don't finish the course by the end date?

When you pay for the class, you are reserving a seat in the classroom for enough time to complete all of the course work. If you don't finish on time, you'll need to re-register for the course and pay again. 

This is similar to what happens in traditional colleges when you take an incomplete or otherwise need to re-take a course.

If I re-take a course, do I have to start from the beginning and re-do all of the work?

No. When you re-register for a course, you may begin at the last point you completed and work to the end of the course.

What happens if I finish the course early?

If you complete the course work before the end date, you have the option to register for a new class and get started right away.

Do I get a refund if I finish the class early?

No. When you pay for a course, you are paying for the course - not for the time you spend completing it. Once you have completed the course, you have received what you paid for.

Do I have to be in a class to be considered 'enrolled' at the DATC?

Yes. If you do not have an active class on your schedule, you aren't considered 'enrolled'.

Am I considered a full-time student if I'm taking a class?

The DATC standard for full time enrollment is 24 - 30 hours per week. You can take two courses simultaneously with a schedule of 12 - 15 hours-per-week in each or one course with a schedule of 24-30 hours-per-week.

What if I need to take a break when I'm in the middle of the class?

So long as you are abiding by your instructor's classroom policies and communicating with your instructor, you are free to take time off during the class. Just remember that it is your responsibility to complete designated course work in the classroom and complete the course by the end date and to meet the attendance standards set by your program and your sponsors.

After the end date passes, how long do I have to enroll in my next class and still be considered an enrolled student?

You have until the end of the fifth business day after your end date to enroll in the next course if you want to be considered still enrolled. If you don't enroll in the next course by the end of the fifth business day, you will be subject to a $20 re-enrollment fee.

Additionally, you do have the option to take a leave of absence for ten days per year. 

To take a leave of absence, you must not have any active courses on your schedule and you must go to Student Services to request your leave of absence. This way, you will NOT be charged the $20 re-enrollment fee if you return at the end of the leave of absence.

What if I've completed an equivalent course somewhere else and want to get credit for that instead of taking the class at the DATC?

If you think that a course you've taken somewhere else is the equivalent of a course on your DATC training plan, we encourage you to talk to your DATC instructor before you enroll in the course. Your instructor can evaluate your prior learning and may be able to waive part of your DATC course work. Waived courses cost you nothing. 

Also, as a matter of policy, you cannot waive more than 50% of the course work in your program.

Is there a way to challenge a course (like you would 'CLEP' out of a class at a traditional college)?

Yes. The training at the DATC is competency-based, which means that if you can show that you're competent, you can earn the credit.

To demonstrate competency for a course, you'll need to let us know that you intend to take the test before you enroll in the class. You can do this in Student Services.

When you tell us that you intend to demonstrate competency, you'll need to pay a $30 assessment fee. After you pay the fee, you'll be issued a voucher with the name of the course and the date by which you must complete the test. 

Take the voucher to your instructor as soon as you're ready and they'll give you the test. If you pass, your instructor will sign the voucher and you can return it to our Assessment Center (in Student Services) to have it recorded as part of your official transcript.

How much is tuition?
Tuition cost is generally $2.00/hour (effective July 1, 2014). Tuition and related fees will be calculated by course based upon the number of hours within the course .

Practical Nurse

I am completely new to nursing/medical professions. Where should I start?

A great place to start is the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) course, which is available at the DATC. Besides being a prerequisite for the Practical Nurse (PN) program, the CNA course will give you a great introduction to the nursing profession, and you will learn vital skills that will be built upon in the PN and RN programs.

Once you complete your CNA, you can get a job and get experience doing hands-on patient care. This will give you additional points on the PN program application. From there, you can go on to complete all the prerequisite and support courses required for PN admission and/or graduation.

How do I apply for the Practical Nurse Program?

The application document is available during our select application times (See “When can I apply for the Practical Nurse program?”). To apply:

  • Go to www.datc.edu/practical-nurse
  • Select the "Apply Now!" Tab. Under Step 2 is a link to the Nursing Application. The link will take you to a pdf file you can print out and either hand-deliver or mail in to the DATC Practical Nurse program by the deadline. We will accept applications that are postmarked by the deadline.
  • Step 3 is only completed after acceptance into the program.
What are the requirements for the Practical Nurse Program?

Applicants must be at least 18 years old, have graduated high school (or equivalent) and have a 3.0 or better cumulative GPA at the time of application to be considered qualified for the program. Additionally, all prerequisite and support courses must be passed with a C grade or better.

  • High School GPA is not calculated into the cumulative GPA once 15 college credits have been completed.
  • All university and/or college courses will be combined to produce one GPA.
  • Remedial Math courses will not be included in the credit and GPA total. These include Math courses below the Intermediate Algebra level.
  • Religious courses taken at a university or college with religious affiliation will not be included in the credit and GPA totals.
  • If the same course was taken two or more times, the most recent course grade will be used to compute the GPA and the previous course grade(s) will be eliminated.

The following courses are Prerequisite courses and must be completed by the first day of the PN program:

  • Biomedical Core I (HTHS 1110) or Human Anatomy (ZOOL 2100)
  • Biomedical Core II (HTHS 1111) or Human Physiology (ZOOL 2200)
  • Introductory Psychology (PSY 1010)
  • Foundations in Nutrition (NUTR 1020)

The following course is a support course and must be completed before the second PN Semester:

  • Introductory Pathophysiology (HTHS 2230)

In addition, applicants must have a current Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) certification prior to starting the program.

For more information on how we select candidates for our program, please see “How do you select applicants?”

What prerequisite/support course are offered at the DATC?

The Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) course is available at the DATC. The other prerequisite and support courses can be taken at Weber State University or another regionally accredited university (restrictions may apply; if you have concerns about courses you have taken qualifying for prerequisite or support courses, please contact us).

When can I apply for the Practical Nurse Program?

Qualified applicants can apply three times a year for our program.   You can see the next application date on our webpage www.datc.edu/practical-nurse under the 'Quick Facts' tab.

For more information on the class schedule, please see “What courses are in the Practical Nurse program?

How do you select applicants?

The Admissions Committee has a set of policies and procedures that are used to select our future students. Candidates are selected based on a competitive point system split into three areas:

  • Area 1: Cumulative grade point average (GPA). The higher your cumulative GPA, the more points you will receive. We use your high school GPA until you have 15 or more credits of college.
  • Area 2: Completed Prerequisite and/or Support Courses: Completing prerequisite and/or support courses before you apply will award you more points.  Extra points are given for completion of two or more of the required courses.  More points will also be awarded if all prerequisite and support courses are completed at the time of application with a 3.0 GPA or higher in those courses.  For a list of prerequisite and support courses, please see “What are the requirements for the Practical Nurse Program?”
  • Area 3: Additional Areas. This area gives equal points for each of the noted areas below:
    • Paid medical work experience, such as 6+ months working as a CNA, Medical Assistant, Surgical Technician, Respiratory Therapist, Paramedic, or EMT.
    • A one-page, typed, personal letter detailing why you wish to become a nurse, why you chose DATC, and your future goals.
    • References: three from a supervisor, employer, or teacher.
How competitive is the application process for the Practical Nurse program?

The application process is very competitive. We typically receive between 100-200 applicants each application cycle for a class of 30 students.

Is the Practical Nurse program self-paced?

Unlike most of the programs offered at the DATC, the Practical Nurse program is taught in a “defined-entry, defined-exit” method. This means that all students attend the same courses at the same times set up for the program. For more information, please see “What are the days/hours of the Practical Nurse program?”

What courses are in the Practical Nurse program?

We have made some exciting changes to our program curriculum.  We are introducing a new Orientation to Practical Nursing course that is designed to prepare students entering the DATC Practical Nurse Program for clinical rotations within the community.  This course will be offered to accepted students the semester prior to starting the program.

We have made adjustments to our program courses and have listed those details in our Course Descriptions here: Practical Nurse Catalog Year 2016.

What are the days/hours of the Practical Nurse program?

The new Orientation to Practical Nursing will be a 6-8 week course that will meet at the DATC two to three times a week.  This orientation course will start in February, July, and October each year.

Theory courses for the program start in January, May, and August and are held on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. There may be some skills labs or pass-offs that will keep you after class until 4:30 p.m. Clinical courses are held on Thursdays and Fridays. The exact hours of your clinical courses will depend on which hospital you are assigned, but they are typically 8-12 hours long. Nursing students are expected to attend all these hours. No part-time or evening hours are available at this time.

Do I have to get a CNA if I have other medical certifications?

Yes. A current Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) certification is required before the first day of the Practical Nurse program, even if you have other medical certifications.

Do I need to turn in transcripts with my application?

Yes.  We require official (sealed) transcripts with each new application.  We will also accept an electronic copy of your official transcripts from schools that offer that service.  Transcripts must be sent from each college attended.  High school transcripts do not need to be sent if you have more than 15 college credits completed.  Please consult WSU about evaluating your international transcripts.

Transcripts can be included with your application or mailed separately. They can be mailed here:

Davis Applied Technology College
Practical Nurse Program
550 South 300 East
Kaysville, UT 84037

Electronic transcripts should be sent to: NursingAdvisor@datc.edu

We cannot receive faxed transcripts at this time.

Official Transcripts must be ordered by the deadline, but can be received after that date as schools may need time to process your request.

TIP: When ordering transcripts online, you may need to put “Practical Nurse Program” in the first address line so your transcripts are directed to the right department within the school.

How should I format the Personal Letter for the Practical Nurse application?

One of the items that we’ve required you to turn in with your DATC PN application is a Personal Letter.  It only needs to be one page, typewritten, and should cover the following topics:

  • Why you want to be a nurse.
  • Why you selected DATC for your practical nurse education.
  • Your future goals.
  • Any special awards or accomplishments you wish to share. 

You can choose how to format your Personal Letter – it does not have to be written in a specific style.  If you would like to, you can address it to the Admissions Committee.

Does DATC offer an RN program?

Weber State University offers a contractual RN Completion nursing program at the DATC campus. This program is only for those who have successfully completed a Practical Nurse program. Current DATC PN students are given first preference for this program, former DATC PN students receive second preference, and then graduates of other programs are considered to fill any remaining slots. The nursing facility is housed on the DATC campus. If admitted to this program, you are enrolled at Weber State, but take your nursing courses at the DATC campus.

Weber State University’s RN program requirements have changed.  We recommend that you check out their website to compare their program requirements with ours so you can make a seamless transition between both programs.

WSU’s RN required courses have changed. Will the DATC PN Program be making changes, too?

The Practical Nurse program recently went through an accreditation review with ACEN.  We have received feedback on ways to make our program better than ever and we have been granted continuing accreditation for our program.  We have updated our webpage with the changes and will be happy to answer any questions that you may have about them.

The College requires that all financial obligations be met prior to the release of official records. You will be notified of any hold placed on records.
How do I transfer DATC courses to other colleges/universities?

Educational institutions accept transfer credit according to their policies and procedures but will generally require an official transcript to initiate the process. Please see the transferring institution for advisement.

Specific articulations agreements exist between the DATC and some local institutions. Because the DATC is focused on terminal job-skills training, students should not expect any transferability not specifically covered by one of the agreements. However, in all cases, students should make contact with the receiving institution(s) before enrolling at the DATC.

Are faxed transcripts considered official?
Most agencies/education institutions will not consider a faxed transcript official because the seal is not visible on a faxed copy. Please contact the agency/institution for advisement.

How do I obtain an application for ADA Accommodations?

The ADA Applications are kept in Students Services, in the main building at the DATC campus. To obtain an application, check in with the Student Services desk. When brought into Student Services, ask for an application.

What does the application process require of me?

You will be required to provide information about how your disability impacts your functioning in an education setting. In most situations, you will be referred to an ADA counselor to discuss needs and to arrange accommodations.

What type of documentation would be helpful to determine eligibility?
Documentation needs to help DATC to understand the nature of your disability. IEPs from High School, evaluations from Vocational Rehabilitation, letters from medical professionals are some examples.
Who do I call about the ADA services that the DATC provides?

Whom do I talk to if I think I am being discriminated against?

If you feel that you are being discriminated against, for any reason, and you cannot resolve your concerns immediately through self-advocacy in your training environment, you are encouraged to see a member of the College Counseling Team in Student Services. You can ask to see the first counselor available to review your concerns and talk about what to do. If your informal efforts to resolve your concerns are not working out, you can talk to your Counselor about the Student Grievance Policy. You may prefer to talk to a Director of Programs (in the Training Division) or the Director of Student Affairs (in Student Services) about your concerns. Students may also wish to contact the Office of Civil Rights if they cannot resolve their concerns on campus.
