RN to BSN Program Details
The RN-BSN program track is designed to specifically meet the needs of RNs who are completing the BSN degree. Recognizing the barriers that RNs face in terms of employment demands, travel time, and family responsibilities, the program has been designed to allow full-time or part-time study, flexibility in the sequencing of courses, and options to complete the nursing courses online. Many courses are available in a traditional classroom format. Students enrolled in courses with clinical components work with a preceptor who holds the qualifications required by the Georgia Board of Nursing. Students in this program have five (5) years from the start of their nursing courses to complete the degree requirements
