  1. The traditional prelicensure track is designed for students who are not yet licensed nurses and seek a two year option to complete the BSN degree.  This track is offered on the Atlanta campus of Mercer University. Satisfactory completion of the prelicensure track and approval from a state board of nursing entitles the graduate to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).  A successful NCLEX-RN exam score leads to licensure as a registered nurse prepared for general practice in hospitals, community agencies, and other health care environments.
  2. The  second degree Accelerated track is for students based in Atlanta who already have a non-nursing bachelor’s degree but desire nursing as their next career choice. This pathways allows you to earn a BSN degree in as few as 12 months.
  3. The RN-BSN Completion Track is for Registered Nurses (RNs) who graduated from an accredited associate degree or diploma nursing program and met the following conditions:
    1. Successfully completed the National Council Licensure Exam for RNs (NCLEX-RN)
