2000 and Beyond
At the start of the new millennium, Lakeview College of Nursing developed a contractual agreement with Eastern Illinois University to bring the Lakeview College of Nursing Baccalaureate of Science in Nursing program to Charleston. Students began to attend classes on the EIU campus in Fall 2001. These students graduated as the first group from this location in Spring 2003. A new contractual agreement was formed with Danville Area Community College whereby DACC began providing administrative services to Lakeview College of Nursing in the Spring of 2002. In the fall of 2006 a building project began on the Danville Campus to provide two additional classrooms and a student study area to better serve the college's growing enrollment. By the fall of 2007 the Danville Campus building expansion was complete and a building at 580 W. Lincoln Ave. in Charleston was purchased to provide a nursing arts lab, faculty offices and an auxilliary classroom to the LCN-EIU students.
