TCL is accepting nursing applications

The Technical College of the Lowcountry is accepting applications through Wednesday, Sept. 6, for spring 2018 entry to its associate degree in nursing (ADN) program. Classes start in January.

“Prospective students don’t have to wait until next fall to start pursuing their dreams of becoming a nurse,” health sciences dean Dr. Glenn Levicki said. “The sooner students start the program, the sooner they’ll finish and be able to enter a high-paying nursing career.”

TCL’s two-year ADN program prepares graduates to practice as registered nurses. Students experience on-campus learning using high-tech simulation equipment and receive additional hands-on practice at clinical sites located throughout Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton and Colleton counties.

“The TCL nursing program in particular is rigorous but produces extremely qualified and successful graduates, giving them the confidence they need to excel in the nursing field,” nursing program director Mary Ann Jarmulowicz said.

TCL has campuses in Beaufort, Bluffton and Hampton. With S.C. Lottery Tuition Assistance, South Carolina residents pay around $1,000 a semester for full-time tuition, regardless of need or income.

In addition, TCL offers in-state tuition to military members and their spouses who are stationed in Beaufort and to residents of Chatham and Effingham counties in Georgia.
