I am a student at Georgia Baptist College of Nursing and I can tell you that we have a reputation for being one of the best. I have actually been told by an Emory nursing graduate that she felt like she got a poor education there in conparison to other graduates. She stated that her education was all book knowledge and no clinical base. GBCN is a BSN program offering 3 years of clinical instead of 2 years and has a high standard for excellence. Emory is an Ivy League school that is going to be very focused on your GPA. GBCN which is now a school of Mercer University on the Atlanta campus is a little more less restrictive although it is very competetive. GOOD LUCK!
My name's Linda, I'm from Hall County and i'm 16 years old. 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 State, 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, 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?
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!
