Savannah Edmond Returns to OFTC’s Nursing Program to become RN

Savvanah Edmonds, OFTC ASN student, knew she wanted to go further in her nursing career.

OFTC – As a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), Savannah Edmond enjoyed caring for her patients. But she wanted to be more involved in their care; and the only way to do that was to go further in her nursing journey.

“I knew caring for others was my passion early in life,” Edmond shared, “so, I always knew nursing was the field I wanted a career in.”

Back to OFTC

Edmond graduated from Oconee Fall Line Technical College’s (OFTC) Practical Nursing (PN) program in 2021 and later started working as a LPN at Dr. Soos Pediatrics and then the Carl Vinson Veterans’ Administration Medical Center in Dublin.

“I have loved being a LPN, but it’s a limited role and I wanted to further my education,” Edmond said.

After such a positive experience in the PN program, Edmond knew she wanted to return to OFTC. And when the college announced the start of their Associate of Science in Nursing program on the Dublin Campus, Edmond knew it was the right time.

“I wouldn’t feel right going anywhere else,” she said. “OFTC has everything I need, and I love it here.” Before coming to OFTC, Edmond attended a four-year university. But after experiencing the technical college system, she said it was a “breath of fresh air.”

A Top Tier Experience

Since Edmond was familiar with what OFTC offers, she knew what to expect when she returned to the classroom.

“The smaller class size makes it less nerve racking to ask questions and to have one on one with the instructors,” Edmond shared. “The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, and they really want to help you reach your goals to become the best you can be.”

“Everything about my experience at OFTC has been top tier,” she added.

It was also close to her home, making it easily accessible as a mom and employee.

Looking back, Edmond wishes she would have enrolled in OFTC sooner.

“I know coming out of high school there is so much stigma on going to a university,” Edmond said. “OFTC has everything you need from friendly staff to flexible class schedules, all at an affordable cost.”

A Brighter Future

After she competes the ASN program, Edmond knows she isn’t stopping there.

“My ultimate goal is to pursue a master’s degree in nursing,” she said.

OFTC’s ASN Program is 2 years long and is designed to prepare those with no nursing background to become RN’s. To learn more about the ASN program or other nursing program options at OFTC, visit the College’s website,
