The RN to BSN nursing program offers high quality, accessible undergraduate education for registered nurses pursuing a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN).  Graduates are prepared for professional nursing practice in primary, secondary and tertiary settings as well as to care for individuals, families, and communities as clients.

The RN to BSN Program is approved by the Georgia Board of Nursing and accredited by the National League for Nursing Accreditation Commission (NLNAC).  The BSN Program combines required core curriculum and nursing courses which comprise a minimum of 58 hours beyond the associate degree.  The curriculum may be completed part time or full time, but must be completed within 4 years of completing NURS 3110.  Most nursing courses are offered in a traditional face-to-face format.  All BSN courses are offered on-line.
