Georgia State University’s School of Nursing welcomes the Perimeter College Department of Nursing associate degree program. On July 1, the associate degree program became an administrative unit of the School of Nursing due to regulations of the Georgia Board of Nursing. The change is administrative, not a physical change.
All associate degree program students continue taking their courses at the current campus locations, and new students will be accepted into the associate degree program under the existing admissions policies and pay existing Perimeter College tuition and fees.
The new name will be The Georgia State University School of Nursing Associate Degree Program, Perimeter College.
Also, Ngozi O. Nkongho, Ph.D., R.N., C.N.E., joins the School of Nursing as the new director of the associate degree nursing program. Nkongho comes to Georgia State from St. Paul’s School of Nursing in Queens, New York where she was dean. She has held academic positions at several colleges and universities and was deputy director for the National League for Nursing Accreditation Commission (NLNAC) for six years. As associate degree program director, Nkongho will report to the new Assistant Dean of Nursing, Joan Cranford, and lead the Clarkston campus nursing education.
More details will be available in an FAQ on the School of Nursing website at nursing.gsu.edu.
The School of Nursing is looking forward to working together and enhancing nursing education for all Georgia State nursing students.Nursing Consolidation Frequently Asked Questions
