School of Nursing

The College of Health Sciences offers an upper-division nursing degree major. It is built on a two-year core curriculum of Liberal Arts and Sciences, which provides the student with a knowledge base for personal growth and professional development. Professional nursing  education incorporates concepts and theories from the humanities and the natural, social, and behavioral sciences throughout the curriculum. The theoretical knowledge of nursing is presented in the classroom and utilized in practice laboratories and selected clinical facilities. 

The undergraduate nursing program is designed to satisfy the current educational requirements prescribed by the Georgia Board of Nursing.
