Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) is hosting an Open House for its Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) program to provide an opportunity to tour the facilities and to meet the instructors, staff and students.

The event will take place on GNTC’s Walker County Campus at 265 Bicentennial Trail, Rock Spring on Monday, June 3, from 4-6 p.m.

The ASN program includes academic and occupational courses, along with a variety of clinical experiences to integrate theory and practice under the clinical instructor’s guidance. The laboratory equipment includes Gaumard patient simulators, or manikins, that can replicate various human patient physiology such as respiration, heart beat and pulse.

Upon completion of the program, graduates receive an associate degree in Nursing and are eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN exam to become a Registered Nurse (RN).

“We are excited to continue to offer our Associate of Science in Nursing program on the Walker County Campus,” said Allison Patnode, dean of Nursing and Health Technologies at GNTC. “We look forward to putting more students out into the profession of nursing.”
