OFTC Receives USDA Rural Development Grant
Thanks to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Community Facilities Grant Program, Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) received a $46,000 USDA Rural Development Grant to assist in furnishing the renovated Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) Bridge program’s classroom on the Sandersville campus.
OFTC’s ADN Bridge program began in August 2018 and allows licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) and paramedics with at least one-year in-field experience to obtain certification to become Registered Nurses (RN).
With the popularity of the program and the College’s desire for its growth, space was a primary concern; so, a renovation of two standard classrooms into one 60-seat classroom began in the spring and was completed this summer.
“We are so excited to have been awarded this grant,” shared OFTC President, Erica Harden. “These funds allowed us to furnish this classroom for our ADN Bridge program students to ensure they receive the best education, training and resources to become successful RN’s and impact the well-being of their communities.”
