I'll be a senior this coming school year. I've been doing a lot of research lately on GA colleges and their nursing programs. I think i've pretty much made my decision as to which schools i'll apply to next year.
I'm considering: GA Southern, Brenau, NGCSU, Kennesaw, Columbus and GA Baptist.
I've heard great things about GA Baptist, and would love to go there. But, i would like to know, how is the social life there? they dont have any sororities or frats (that's what it says on fastweb.com), and it is a small Baptist school, just for nursing. But, gbcn IS in (or close to) ATL, so i guess that's good, social wise.
Don't get me wrong, i'm not gonna party all the time. I definitely want to do well, so i plan on studying a lot, cuz there's SO much to learn in nursing.
But, i would like to have somewhat of a normal college social life while i'm there-not too much to ask, right?
I was considering GA State, but from what i've read on here, it seems their nursing program isn't too great...
Just to let ya know, i plan on getting my RN/BSN, and i would loooove to work in NICU.
Any info about gbcn would be great. Thanks!

I'm a male GBC student and I cant say enough about the program. They have an excellent staff, most of them have 20 yrs. or more experience, and know how to teach at all levels. Let me know if you have any question as I will be glad to help.

I'm in my first semester at Gordon College and loving it. It's an ADN program and I plan on going into an RN to MSN program later. The teachers are great lectures, and are very optimistic. Our pass rate right now is 95%. (You can never put too much emphasis on pass rates) Pass rate's is one of the most important qualifications in deciding on which nursing programs to apply. It doesn't help you if you pass the program but can't pass the NCLEX b/c the program didn't teach you the things you needed to know in order to pass. I was enrolled in Georgia Perimeter College's Nursing Program last fall and asked them about their pass rate(which I couldn't find anywhere) It was like it was a big secret. Needless to say I withdrew at midterm and applied to Gordon. Turns out they were just trying to hide how horrible their program is b/c the pass rate was very low. Good luck in your decsion. I hope everything works out for ya'll!!!!!!!!!!!!
