What Is Nursing?Nursing is an art and a science. It is the art of knowing how to balance knowledge and compassion to give holistic care to individuals, families, groups and communities. As a science, nursing requires a wealth of knowledge and critical-thinking skills necessary to provide safe, effective, culturally competent medical care. The Perimeter College Department of Nursing became an administrative unit of the Georgia State University School of Nursing in 2016.
The associate degree path to nursing is now the Georgia State University School of Nursing Associate Degree Program, Perimeter College.
The associate degree courses continue to be housed at the same campus locations, and admissions standards and program costs remain the same.
For more information on the change, visit the School of Nursing website .
Undergraduate students learn the essentials of nursing care in the classroom and an advanced simulation lab. They practice skills learned in a wide range of facilities, including hospitals, community settings and clinics, caring for patients after surgery, providing health screenings for pre-school children, administering flu vaccines to adults and caring for new mothers and their babies.
The bachelor’s degree program is available for first-time nurses through the traditional and Achieving Curriculum Expeditiously (ACE, fast-track) options. The ACE option allows students with degrees in another field or heavy science background in a bachelor’s degree to complete degree requirements more quickly.
Accreditation and Approvals
The College of Nursing is approved by the Georgia Board of Nursing and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), a national accreditation agency for schools of nursing. See the CCNE website or the Georgia Board of Nursing website for more information.
