This is far too subjective to say that any one school is undeniably the best school in Georgia. Emory may be the best school for you, it may even be the very best school in GA *in your opinion* but it isn't an undeniable fact.
As for me and my opinion...
My first choice is Georgia State. It is the only school that I applied to for the fall. If I'm not accepted then I will certainly apply to other programs for spring, but I want to go to GSU badly enough that I put all my eggs in one basket this time around. I like GSU because the tuition is very affordable and the campus is in close proximity to my home. I have a neighbor who graduated from Georgia State's SON about 2 years ago and speaks so very highly of the program and faculty; I have another neighbor who is currently in the program and echoes that opinion. Several years ago when I was working as a PCT at one of the local hospitals, GSU nurses had a good rep amongst staff for being able to apply theory to practice. My ex-husband, who is an administrator at a local hospital system, says that GSU students/recent grads still have a great rep at his facilities. Finally, GSU has a good NCLEX first-pass rate.
All that being said, there are so many GREAT nursing schools in Georgia to choose from. You just have to find the one(s) with the most of what's important to you. I would try to visit some campuses (they each have their own "feel") and talk with current and former students. You can access NCLEX pass rates at the SOS website. Best of luck to you, sk8inghunny!!
(ps--Just for the record, highschoolfuturenurs: I have another friend who is currently a student in Emory's SON and she would certainly agree with you.
She adores the program, and it was actually the only school that she applied to. Emory has an *awesome* program and I wouldn't say otherwise. I don't want you to think that I'm picking on you or Emory.
