The inmates housed at Nash CI located at 2869 US 64 Alternate in Nashville, NC are placed according to their custody level (determined by a number of factors including the past criminal history and the length of their sentence). There are ample educational and vocational training programs for all inmates, especially ones that show a willingness to learn new things that will prepare them for a better life when they are released. The mission is to promote and prepare the offender to leave in better shape than when they arrived, giving them the best chance to never come back and thus lower the state's recidivism rate.

HISTORY - The first prison at this site opened in 1938, a close custody facility known as Nash Prison Unit. In the early 1960s, Nash went through a series of changes, including conversion to a misdemeanor facility, a medium custody prison, and finally to a minimum custody unit. In 1970, it was renamed Nash Advancement Center and then renamed Nash Correctional Center in 1988. Nash Correctional Center became part of the newly built Nash Correctional Institution in 1992.

The old Nash Correctional Center facility is used for training and storage.
