    I got my Bachelors in Political Science from Georgia Southern and I loved it. I know several nurses that graduated from there and they really liked the nursing program. We've even talked about moving back to Statesboro, I really miss the town. Savannah is less than an hour away too and we had a good time there.

    I went back for a visit last year and they have a huge new library system and they've got a great recreation center now too. The cost of living there is a lot cheaper than Atlanta and the small town is less overwhelming, plus you can walk everywhere on campus, its all in one big cluster.

    As far as GA Southern, it is one of the top best rated schools of nursing in GA. Georgia State is popular and also has a really good amount of reviews on this blog site. I wouldn't attend Mercer simply because it costs as much as a brand new car and your are going to get your masters, then fine. Otherwise, I wouldn't advise to going to Mercer unless you have some phenomenal government help and financial aid/scholarships. You do not want to be stuck in that much debt starting off as a nurse. You will want to enjoy the fruits of you labor.
    Good Luck!
