We are currently not accepting students to the RN-BSN program.
Mission Statement: In concert with the Georgia College liberal arts mission, the School of Nursing is committed to the formation of nurse leaders to engage in evidence-based practice, lifelong learning, and civic participation in a health information intensive environment through the development and mastery of clinical reasoning, professional nursing skills, and values. The BSN program prepares nursing professionals who are life-long learners and have the knowledge and skills to support the healthcare needs of diverse populations.
This program is designed for practicing registered professional nurses holding an associate degree or diploma degree in nursing. Completion of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree will take three semesters (or longer if preferred). This program builds on the knowledge and skills of the practicing nurse following completion of the core curriculum. Associate degree nurses will receive six hours of transfer credit for their first medical-surgical nursing course taken in the associate degree program. The BSN degree requires 120 credit hours. Students should apply and be accepted to GC during their core curriculum and receive advisement from the RN-BSN Coordinator.
Registered Professional Nurses may be admitted to this program fall and spring semester. Interested nurses should submit their application to the RN-BSN program by the deadline in their last semester of core coursework. Students are admitted once their core coursework and U.S. and Georgia History requirements are completed.
RN-BSN classes are now fully online. Optional meetings for orientation, exams or presentations may be offered but will not be required.
Upon completion of this program, RN-BSN graduates will be prepared to:
- Assume clinical leadership positions in a variety of health care settings to include, but not limited to, acute, rehabilitation, and community/public health nursing.
- Pursue higher education at the graduate (Master’s) level of nursing in advanced nursing practice, administration, and/or education and ultimately earn a terminal nursing degree.
