SWGTC nursing students are well prepared

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Officials at Southwest Georgia Technical College in Thomasville say they're preparing their nursing students well for nursing careers.

One hundred percent of the Spring Quarter graduates passed their exit exams as well as their Boards. "It's hard to teach someone everything in such a short amount of time so that tell us that our curriculum has been based on those things that are most important for our students," said Program Director Tammy Bryant.

The nursing program is designed to prepare students as entry-level practitioners.

Starting this fall, the college will open a new virtual hospital allowing students to train in real world conditions.
