About the Nursing Program
The Associate of Science in Nursing Program at Middle Georgia College requires at least two years of sequential nursing courses and additional core courses required prior to admission and during the nursing program.
The graduate of the program receives an Associate of Science in Nursing degree and is eligible to apply to write the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) for licensure as a registered nurse. The nursing program is approved by the Georgia Board of Nursing and accredited by the National League for Nursing. (National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, 61 Broadway, New York, NY 1006, 212-363-5555, ext. 153).
The Associate of Science in Nursing program is designed to prepare graduates for entry-level practice as a registered nurse. Practice as an RN occurs in a variety of acute, chronic, and community health care settings. The Georgia Statewide Articulation plan provides direct access for MGC RN's to baccalaureate completion programs, without repeating nursing or general education core courses.
