1. Georgia State
2. Kennesaw State

The other two are about equal 3 & 4.

To achieve your BSN, you do have to attend a 4 year school. There are 16 public universities in Georgia that offer that program. They are all worth looking at except for Valdosta State – which is weird and you ought to avoid that one.

If you want an RN, you can usually get that training and certification through community colleges. In Georgia, there are an additional 11 community colleges with that program.

So now you get to do some online research and put some thought on how you wish to proceed. To locate schools in Georgia with the nursing programs, use the following free website provided by the College Board:

    Kennesaw State Uni.

    I am in the process to turn in an application for Wellstar (the nursing program).

    For nursing, this school is very prestigious but it is VERY hard to get into..

    GEORGIA STATE!! They have a great nursing program! The campus is near Grady Hospital so they are both always working together to help students get experience and work with a staff of doctors and nurses. It’s a research school so some of the studies you might read about some new development discovered in the medical/ science field or different types of experiments aren’t written by just some random person but sometimes one of your own teachers! Georgia State is always growing and continues to grow. It’s a diverse school with a lot of opportunities for almost any major.

    Kennesaw is definitely the second best! Their Nursing program is hard to get into because so many people apply for it. They teach you everything you need know but you don’t get as much as a close interaction like you would from Georgia State.

    I would completely mark off schools like West Georgia and Columbus just because they’re not a highly recognized schools. Nothing wrong with going there but if having a choice then Georgia State or Kennesaw would be the best bet.
