WTC Nursing Students Near Completion of Program

  

As Kingstree resident Olivia Reynolds nears the end of her year-long practical nursing course of study at Williamsburg Technical College, the reasons she entered the program are clearer than ever.

 

“I am so glad that a program like this is here…number one in the state and 19th nationally,” says Reynolds about the nursing program. “The teachers want you to learn, pass, and succeed.” 

 

Reynolds could be speaking for the whole practical nursing class when she says WTC has opened up possibilities for her to get an education leading to a successful career. The program – like all programs at WTC – has instructors who are willing to go the extra mile to help a student succeed and classes that are tough enough to prepare a student for the real world of work.

 

Like so many other students at WTC, Reynolds credits the campus size and helpfulness of faculty and staff as main reasons WTC is the place to be. She believes the College has provided her with the tools to succeed in a career and to continue to a higher level of study if she so desires.

 

The next Pre-Admission Exam (PAX) test will be given at the College on Tuesday, August 5, to complete entrance for the 2014-15 class. For information on entering the WTC practical nursing program, call 843.355.4130.

  Free National Skills Assessment Tutoring Classes to be Offered at WTC  

Williamsburg Technical College (WTC) will host free WorkKeys assessment tutoring classes to help persons prepare to take the job skills assessment test.  WorkKeys assessment helps employers select, hire, train, develop, and retain a high-performance workforce. This series of tests measures foundational and soft skills and offers specialized assessments to target institutional needs.
 

The tutoring classes are open to the general public and will take place Monday-Thursday, July 14-August 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Building C, Room 112 (Workforce Readiness Center), on the College’s Kingstree campus. Teachers for the classes will be James Bostic, LaTitia Harvin, and Erikson Jackson, all members of the College’s Accessible Support Services and Instruction for Sustainable Transition (ASSIST) Grant program team. A date to administer the WorkKeys assessment test will be set sometime after the August 14 class completion date.
 

WorkKeys has helped millions of people in high schools, colleges, professional associations, businesses, and government agencies build their skills to increase global competitiveness and develop successful career pathways. Successful completion of WorkKeys assessments in Applied Mathematics, Locating Information, and Reading for Information can lead to earning ACT's National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC), a portable credential earned by more than 1 million people across the United States.
 

Participants will be required to attend a college orientation session on July 30 from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. For more information on the free classes, the WorkKeys assessment, tutoring, or the orientation, contact James Bostic at 843.355.4177 or bosticj@wiltech.edu.

WTC Retention Rate Superior Among Technical Colleges  

Recent South Carolina Technical College System (SCTCS) reports show that Williamsburg Technical College (WTC) had the lowest withdrawal rate among the system’s colleges during last fall semester.  

According to a report presented by Dr. Russ Bumba, SCTCS Association Vice President for Student Services, the average of all technical college withdrawals was 7.3 percent, while WTC had only .6 percent withdrawing.  

WTC President Dr. Patty Lee says the figures are indicative of the good work WTC’s faculty and staff do to help retain the students who attend WTC.  “As the smallest technical college of the 16 comprising the system, WTC provides many of the same program offerings and services of the larger colleges with fewer faculty and staff and lots less money,” Lee says. “It is a testament to our exceptional employees that we are retaining more students per capita than our sister institutions.” 

Williamsburg Technical College will be holding registration for fall semester 2014 July 15-August 1. For information regarding application and registration, call 843.355.4165 or email admissions@wiltech.edu.

NURSING ASSISTANTS COMPLETE TRAINING AT WTC  

 

Williamsburg Technical College (WTC) recently held a pinning ceremony for three students who have successfully completed the Nursing Assistant (NA) certificate program. Those receiving pins during the ceremony included Jashaya Gamble of Greeleyville, Wanda Cooper of Hemingway, and Deondray Greene of St. Stephen. WTC President Dr. Patty Lee and Vice President of Academic Affairs Clifton Elliott were part of the program with Dr. Lee offering an inspirational congratulatory speech to the students and their families who attended. 

 

The Nursing Assistant certificate program curriculum requires less than half as many courses as the Practical Nursing diploma program and covers such areas of study as cardiopulmonary resuscitation techniques, general care of patents, and modern concepts of geriatric health care and nursing techniques in the long-term care setting. Nursing assistants, under the supervision of nursing and medical staffs, provide personal care and emotional support to elderly and/or acutely ill patients confined to hospitals, short-term intermediate facilities and long-term care institutions.   

 

Nursing assistants employed in health care facilities are often the principal caregivers and are required to take temperatures, pulse, respiration, and blood pressure. In addition, nursing assistants observe patients’ physical, mental and emotional conditions, and report any changes to the nursing or medical staff. They also assist by answering patients’ call bells, deliver messages, serve meals, make beds, and help patients eat. The Nursing Assistant program requires 16 hours of credit for successful completion of the program. 

  

Graduates of the Nursing Assistant certificate program are eligible to take the Competency Exam for state certification as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). A grade of ‘C’ or higher is required in all core courses. All direct caregivers must obtain a criminal record check as designated by clinical agencies and may not be eligible for work if their record shows a criminal history.  

 

For information on the Nursing Assistant program, call 843.355.4130.
