The Baccalaureate Degree Nursing Program ascribes to the Georgia RN/BSN Articulation Model. Advanced placement is available in the baccalaureate degree program for registered nurses. Successful completion of NURS 3320, Concepts of Nursing, a 3-hour, noncredit degree course, allows you to receive 25 semester hours of sophomore, junior and senior level nursing credits for NURS 3209, 3302, 3313, 3314, 3318 & 4414; and enter the clinical sequence at the senior level.

Bridge RN-BSN students are admitted once annually in January while pre-licensure, generic traditional and accelerated students are admitted each spring and fall semester to maintain smaller classes.

Accelerated BSN Program Details
Kennesaw State University’s Nursing Program offers an intensive, accelerated program for students who hold degrees in other disciplines. You are encouraged to declare Nursing as your major and begin taking the general education component of the program at your earliest convenience. Keep in mind, however, the Nursing program is highly competitive, with many more applicants than the number of students that can be accommodated. Students earning the greatest number of A’s and B’s in the prerequisite courses are the most likely for admission.
It is most advantageous to discuss your goals, timeline and outside commitments with the nursing advisement center staff to determine your course load. The two of you can then effectively plan your smooth progression into the Nursing Program.
