What do students expect when selecting their nursing program of study? Faculty at Georgia Baptist College of Nursing believe they expect a supportive, caring, and compassionate environment of learning, high level of resources to support their education, opportunities to expand their learning both globally and through research, and innovative technology to enhance their learning. Faculty also believe we meet these expectations on every level.

New students arrived this semester very eager to be part of an ESTABLISHED nursing program with a proven track record of success.  Some students came to begin their study of nursing hoping to commence their professional careers in a few years, while others entered graduate coursework to advance their nursing career. What makes this school distinctive is plaiClass picturen and simple; it's the experience! From the time of recruitment through their completion of study, each student is cultivated, nurtured, educated, and supported to reach their highest potential. We maintain the motto, 'if we admit you, we commit to you.' Undergraduate students have numerous opportunities to engage in professional leadership through student organizations. The College remains one of the few programs in Georgia and the southeast with 100% school enrollment in the National Student Nurses Association. Graduate students are mentored by faculty in coursework and faculty assist with arranging their clinical experiences with the brightest and most experienced clinical preceptors in the state of Georgia. The Ph.D. degree program was the fourth nursing research doctoral program in the state and it has grown to become the largest Ph.D. in nursing degree program.

Our graduates remain among the highest recruited nurses. We are true to our mission: to excel in teaching, scholarship, leadership, practice, research, and service, while embracing the core values of the College.  We are GBCN and we remain very proud of our heritage and continued success. It's all ....part of the experience
