    Hi Carla I am freshman @ PTC in the ADN program. Everything has gone well so far. Good luck with school.

    I was reading earlier postings and was wondering how school was going for you. You should be about through right? I am a May 2006 graduate of the ADN program. Am a L&D nurse and love it. Nursing program at PTC was the hardest thing I ever did and I was an A student the first time I went to PTC for the Medical Assisting Program 18 years ago. We started out with 29 students and out of those, 5 (original students)passed at the end....what does that tell you? We did have instructors that were biased and passed those they liked and made it harder on all of us each semester. The cumulative ERI's changed to ATI's which were very difficult and then they just started with the SIMS man right before we graduated...so many changes took place in the program while we were going through it which made it more difficult. However, we made it and you will too.
    Much luck with your nursing career!

    Actually I am almost done, I will graduate in May 2008, I had to take a semster off because of a illness in my family, so it pushed me back one semster.

    Y'all don't pass on rumors about other schools, teachers etc. Not only is it rude it's against the terms of service of allnurses.com

    Hi, I'm an LPN student at York Tech in Rock Hill, SC and after passing the boards for LPN, I plan to work in Greenwood and finish my ADN at Piedmont Tech. I was a Paramedic in Greenwood/Abbeville/McCormick for many years and moved to Chester to live with my parents so I could finish the LPN program earlier due to grant money Chester County gave to York Tech and since I was a county resident of Chester, I only had to wait a year vs. two at Piedmont Tech. I did not want to do that and I have worked with many nurses that graduated from Piedmont Tech and they are some of the best nurses. I had already completed some of my pre-reqs at Piedmont Tech before I transferred and the only reason I did was so I could finish the LPN faster. I loved Piedmont Tech and have only heard good things about their instructors and that reflects on the good nurses I have worked with in the ERs. I also worked at a nursing home in Union, SC that had several nurses from Piedmont Tech and they were the best. I am not going to compare instructors because that would be very rude and very unprofessional as we are trained to be professionals. In my own opinion, if someone didn't pass, they didn't strive hard enough. All nursing school is hard but if the instructors were not any good, they wouldn't be where they are now. It's all about attitude and how bad you want to help others and that's part of being a nurse.

    ^^How did you like York Tech?

    I like York Tech okay but there are a few things that could be better. One is that you have to have an 80 to pass. We just lost about 9 students who were only a few points away. Some of these students had been through the course a second time so they now have to wait five years to go back in. You have to have Chemistry for the RN program but at Piedmont Tech you do not. I will probably transfer because my daughters and boyfriend who I lived with before I moved here all live in Abbeville. My daughters will be going to Piedmont Tech in August. I will probably find a job in a nursing home and take the other pre-req's that I need to finish my RN and I will need a job that will work with school schedule. Are you in the program at Piedmont Tech? You can email me privately at_________and we can discuss this a little more in detail. Thanks Beth
