SQL Dates

I cannot convert nvarchar(25) to datetime.

I need to create two columns
datetime dd-mm-yyyy-mmmm - 15-Mar-2015-1512

second column named time
1512 pm.

i've tried CONVERT(nvarchar(25),CONVERT(DATE,column,106),103) AS AdmittedDatetime,

You need to have the column in this format: '20150317 15:12'

So, if you can't change the data then you'll need to put the column values in the above format. For that you'll need to use some string functions:
CONVERT(nvarchar(25),CONVERT(DATE,LEFT(column,8) + ' ' + SUBSTRING(column,9,2) + ':' + RIGHT(column,2),106),103) AS AdmittedDatetime

    RIGHT(col1, 4) + ' ' + CASE WHEN RIGHT(col1, 4) >= '12' THEN 'pm' else 'am' END + '.' AS time
    SELECT CAST('201503171512' AS nvarchar(25)) AS col1
) AS test_data
