The BSN program provides students the knowledge, skills, and abilities to function effectively in all areas of nursing practice through quality instruction and clinical experiences. Clinical experiences encompass not only acute care settings, but also community and home care, ambulatory care, and primary care settings. The program provides students the opportunity to apply didactic knowledge in a variety of hands-on and simulated clinical settings, and lays the groundwork for continuing one’s professional education at the graduate level. Upon successful completion of the BSN program, graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX) offered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. The BSN program is taught on the Augusta and Athens campuses.
This program requires an additional admissions application beyond the regular Augusta University undergraduate admissions application. This program is an accredited 2+2 program, which means applicants must complete their freshmen and sophomore years (60 semester hours) at an accredited college/university of choice, and the junior and senior years (64 semester hours) on the Augusta University campus after being admitted to the program. Please see the Office of Academic Admissions website for specific admissions information: https://www.augusta.edu/admissions/hs-programs/nursing.php
