About Macon State
We are now offering this degree in two formats - traditional classroom and ONLINE.
The purpose of the RN-BSN Completion Program is to provide Central Georgia Registered Nurses the opportunity to complete a baccalaureate nursing program.
The nursing curriculum will follow the guidelines established by the Georgia Board of Nursing. Students admitted to the program will already hold a R.N. license. Depending upon their previous level of study, students will need to complete the remaining baccalaureate degree requirements in the core curriculum and continue with upper-division course work in nursing and health sciences. The program will require students to complete major courses in community health, pathopharmacology, nursing leadership and management, and individualized clinical experiences.
The RN-BSN Completion Program in Nursing adheres to the Georgia RN-BSN Articulation Plan and will allow students to complete a baccalaureate degree in nursing after graduating with a diploma or associate degree in nursing and obtaining licensure as a registered nurse.
Registered nurses pursuing the baccalaureate degree will be able to attend classes in Macon while continuing to work in the profession.
The RN-BSN Completion Program consists of 60 academic credit hours beyond the associate degree. Students must complete all core courses prior to being admitted to the RN-BSN Completion Program.
The RN-BSN Completion ONLINE Program has the same 60 academic credit hours to be offered online. There are three courses that require students to come to campus for the clinical component of the course. This will be a minimum of twice per semester during the term the course is scheduled.
