Southeastern Tech’s First ASN Class Meets, a Decade in the Making
May 28, 2014 - Southeastern Technical College completed a 10-year process when it welcomed its first ever Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) class on May 19 in Vidalia.
“We are so glad to have you at STC,” said STC President Dr. Cathryn Mitchell. “We've been anticipating this day for years.”
STC's ASN program, which opens the doors to a registered nurse career, kicked off with an orientation session at the program's newly renovated home next to the college's Economic Development Center in Vidalia. Attending the session were representatives from all areas of the college, there to meet an exclusive class of 29 chosen from an accomplished applicant pool.
“Two of the students in the class have perfect 4.0 GPAs,” said Barry Dotson, vice president for student affairs at Southeastern Tech. “In fact, the class average GPA is 3.43.”
The class will be under the tutelage of Martha Anders, program director, and Kathy Klaric, master's degree graduates who have spent decades in the field.
The program, which will officially begin in the fall, will initially operate only in Vidalia, but with construction of a new health science building underway in Swainsboro, the college has plans to expand the ASN program to that campus as well.
“This is a much-needed program,” said Mitchell. “You've got to work hard, and you will be in the spotlight. But we will do everything to ensure your success.”
