Support the renovation of the OLD MAIN Rural Health Education Center for Nursing and Allied Health Programs

The Dakota College at Bottineau Foundation plans to remodel the iconic Old Main building to significantly increase the DCB nursing program’s classroom and laboratory capacity through the creation of the Center for Rural Health Education. By remodeling instead of building a brand new structure, we can save a piece of DCB history and dramatically reduce costs. The price tag for this project is $4 million. We have already raised 92% of our goal, thanks to $2.5 million in funding from the North Dakota legislature and generous donations from DCB supporters.

Turning Old Main into the Center for Rural Health Education will make Bottineau a healthcare education hub in North Dakota. DCB nursing students will be able to learn in a high-tech nursing classroom/lab that simulates real hospital settings in the key areas of pediatrics, emergency, childbirth, and surgery.

Can YOU help us reach the last 8% of our capital campaign goal?

Your generous support will have a lasting positive impact on DCB students, the Bottineau region, and the State of North Dakota.

Our Goals are:
  • Triple our enrollment of nursing students.
  • Meet the need to combat the shortage of medical nurses.
  • Save money, honor history and build a stellar facility at Old Main.

Alumni Spotlight Stories

Although the pandemic seemed to upend much of the world, many healthcare workers spent the last year quietly donning their scrubs and signing up for long shifts. Their hands provided care. Their resilience withstood unprecedented changes, and for two Dakota College at Bottineau alumnae reflecting on their experiences, their education helped prepare them for it all.
