Starting this upcoming spring, Piedmont Community College (PCC) is expanding its Associate Degree Nursing program. Currently the total number of spaces allowed for PCC is 74 nursing students. In 2022, that number will increase.

The North Carolina Board of Nursing approved 15 additional slots for students in the program, bringing the total number of spaces to 89. These additional slots will be used to begin a new evening/weekend cohort on the Caswell County Campus.

“The addition of this cohort will help address not only a critical shortage of nurses in Caswell County and the surrounding areas, but it will also provide greater access to quality healthcare in this region,” Alisa Montgomery, PCC Dean of Health and Wellness, said. “We look forward to partnering with the Caswell County Health Department and the Caswell Family Medical central for clinical opportunities, as well as increasing access to healthcare by providing clinic services in Pelham.”

As the new school year approaches, with classes beginning August 16, there are other associate degree options in healthcare such as Medical Assisting and the new Emergency Medical Science for Paramedics, debuting in its inaugural semester this upcoming fall. Other short-term continuing education options include certification as a Nurse Aide, Medication Technician, and a Medical Administrative Assistant.

For more information about the new evening/weekend option, contact Darrick Woods, PCC Associate Degree Nursing Director, at or (336) 322-2219, or find details by visiting PCC online at
