Members of Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College’s Associate Degree Nursing Flex Class of 2016 were pinned during a ceremony Thursday, Dec. 15, on campus in Roquemore Auditorium.

Myra Ardis, Kimberly Daniels, Jordan Gallman, April Johnson, Victoria Mickens, Kimberly Mims, Michael Morris and Brandy Rucker successfully completed the condensed version of the school’s prestigious ADN program designed to help licensed practical nurses transition into the role of a registered nurse.

During the ceremony, Mickens received the Outstanding Academic Achievement Award and Daniels received the Clinical Excellence Award.

“OCtech’s ADN Flex is based on a unique model that provides a solid foundation for nursing practice and supports a path for seamless academic progression toward a bachelor’s and master’s degree in nursing,” said Candance Tooley, Flex Nursing programs coordinator. “With this program, these nurses are greeted with full support during a time of change and learning.”

The ADN Flex program meets two days a week – once for class and once for clinical – and is supplemented with online components. The program runs from January to December.

Applications are currently being accepted for the Class of 2018. For more information, contact Tooley at tooleyc@octech.edu or 803-535-1340.
