Nursing Department Mission Statement

Have you always wanted to become a nurse? Midlands Technical College Nursing faculty are eager to help you reach your goal in our fully articulated Practical Nursing (PN) and Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) programs. Practical nursing and registered nursing students take the same clinical coursework for the first three semesters. After three semesters, you are eligible to take the NCLEX-PN exam to become a practical nurse in South Carolina. If you wish to continue on, two additional clinical semesters will grant you eligibility to take the NCLEX-RN exam to become a registered nurse in South Carolina.

Pre-Nursing Advisement Appointments

If you are currently a Pre-Nursing student needing to be advised for classes, please schedule an appointment with Jonathan Miles. You can schedule an appointment with Mr. Miles through Appointment Manager on your MyMTC account.

If you have not submitted your college transcripts to Admissions, please have a copy of them available at the appointment. 

Once you have scheduled your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email confirming your appointment. 

Criminal Background Checks and Drug Screenings

Students entering nursing are required to undergo both a criminal background check and drug screening. The Nursing Department has contracted with an agency to conduct the background check and to coordinate the drug screening. As the start date for the clinical sequence approaches, students will be mailed detailed information regarding this process.

Information Sessions

Do you have questions and want to talk to someone in person? Information sessions are held the first and third Wednesdays of every month (except December) on the Airport Campus in the Health Science Building, room 141 at 2:00 pm. The sessions usually last an hour and a half.

Come hear how to get started at MTC in nursing.  Included is the process for admission, and information about the curriculum and critical progression policies.  Individual questions will be answered at the end of the presentation.

No pre-registration required. No children allowed.
