Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program on the Newnan Campus

Cynthia Epps, PhD, RN, ASSOCIATE DEAN

The School of Nursing Undergraduate Program offers a part-time Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree in Newnan for pre-licensure students. The generic track prepares graduates who are eligible to apply to take the NCLEX-RN, the national licensing examination to become a Registered Nurse. This program only admits once each year in the Summer, additional application information can be found below under 'How to Apply.'

The BSN program is based on a philosophy of caring. The philosophy is exemplified through Caring Groups that provide students with the opportunity to learn caring for self and others. The Caring Groups consist of a group of 10-12 students and one faculty facilitator. The Group meets together on a regular basis during the program to provide encouragement and support, thus enhancing the potential for success in the program. The Photo Gallery illustrates some of the activities in this program.

Please scroll down on this page for specific information on our BSN program.
