Associate Degree Nursing Major

From an early age, Abigail Hershberger knew she was gravitating to a career in health care. She read a lot and would find anything she could get her hands on that contained medical subject matter. She was also the oldest of 10 children and often found herself slipping into the role of caretaker when it came to her younger siblings. These factors were key points along her path to becoming a Piedmont Technical College nursing student.

A supply of well-qualified nursing staff is essential for quality health care. This ongoing need presents graduates of Piedmont Tech's Nursing programs with a wealth of employment opportunities, and with excellent earning potential.

Piedmont Tech's Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program is approved by the SC Board of Nursing and accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). The nursing program at Piedmont Technical College prepares graduates to take the licensing examination, NCLEX, to become a registered nurse.
