Georgia, GA - RN to BSN Nursing School Program

RN to BSN programs in Georgia are designed for RNs that, after completing their RN training and entering the work force, decide that they wish to improve their specialized nursing knowledge and skills while remaining in the work force. Evening study and online courses allow access when its convenient for students, and advanced placement through NLN Nursing Acceleration Challenge Exams, which analyze current knowledge and ability and allow students to skip courses that cover skills and knowledge they have already picked up in the workplace, allow students to speed up the process.

To apply for an RN to BSN education program in Georgia, one must have completed their prior studies with sufficient grades—usually around 2.5 in previous nursing courses—along with current licensure as a Registered Nurse. Once accepted into a program, class work is largely an extension of previous RN training, with advancement of knowledge in nursing practice, research and theory, alongside some electives in specialized areas of study such as health care law. There isn’t a cumulative final test, but they do have minimum GPA requirements for graduation, usually around a C average.
