OFTC Receives Final SACSCOC Approval for ADN Bridge Program
After receiving initial approval to move forward with the creation of an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) Bridge program last summer, Oconee Fall Line Technical College recently received the final approval from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to begin the program in August of 2018.
“We are thrilled to receive this final approval and to officially be able to say that we will begin the ADN Bridge Program this fall,” shared Tammy Bayto, Dean of OFTC’s Allied Health Programs.
Students who desire to enroll in the bridge program are required to work in field as a licensed practical nurse or paramedic for one year prior to applying to the program. After core classes are complete the program will take one year, and students will then be prepared to sit for the NCLEX-RN exam to become licensed Registered Nurses.’
