VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Valdosta Technical College will soon offer degrees in one of the few recession-proof fields.

The college will begin offering an Associate's Degree in Nursing this fall.

They're partnering with Southwest Georgia Technical College in Thomasville, which will provide much of the faculty.

The college will provide a state-of-the art lab, and will also allow students to train in real clinical settings.

"We have affiliation agreements with South Georgia Medical Center, Smith Northview, Tift Regional, Presbyterian Home, and we also have an affiliate with Brooks County Hospital, which is an affiliate of the Archibald system," says Tammy Bryant, Off-Campus Coordinator for Valodsta Tech.

Valdosta Technical College will be holding two information sessions on the Nursing Program. They will take place at 10 AM on June 3rd and June 10th.
