The GSU RN-to-BSN program is rigorous and prepares you to tackle real world healthcare challenges through sound clinical judgement and the promotion of evidence-based practice.
Beginning Fall semester 2022, Georgia State University’s RN-to-BSN program joins a collaborative academic agreement with other University System of Georgia schools. The collaboration allows a unique learning experience that enhances your baccalaureate academic studies.
