Georgia nursing schools, online and on-campus

Georgia offers a variety of institutions that feature the convenience of a virtual learning forum. The diverse curriculum includes coursework in microbiology, anatomy and physiology, chemistry, nutrition, and psychology and behavioral sciences. Supervised clinical rotations in various health care settings may also be part of a degree program.

Students may choose a specialty in one of many areas such as geriatrics, pediatrics or ambulatory care. After specializing, nurses can become credentialed in the field by organizations such as the American Nursing Credentialing Center or National League for Nursing. Although voluntary, credentialing is required by many employers. Graduates must pass the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN), a national licensing examination, before practicing. The Georgia Board of Nursing can provide details on the requirements necessary to practice nursing in this state.
