Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
   -> (
   -> AdmissionDate varchar(100)
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.66 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Wed, 19 Jun 2019 04:10:20');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.22 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+---------------------------+
| AdmissionDate             |
+---------------------------+
| Wed, 19 Jun 2019 04:10:20 |
+---------------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the to return date and time based on string and format −

mysql> SELECT STR_TO_DATE(AdmissionDate, '%a, %d %b %Y %H:%i:%s EDT') from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+---------------------------------------------------------+
| STR_TO_DATE(AdmissionDate, '%a, %d %b %Y %H:%i:%s EDT') |
+---------------------------------------------------------+
| 2019-06-19 04:10:20                                     |
+---------------------------------------------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
