Kennestone Hospital is only 2 exits away on the highway from Kennesaw State University. I work with several nurses who completed the RN-BSN program, and one who is currently enrolled there. I'm pretty certain the advisor there is still the same as when I was a student. She's really nice and helpful although always swamped with the amount of work it takes with applications and acceptances.
Since I've only worked in GA as a RN, I have nothing to compare it to. However, it's taken me a little time to adjust to the work and only about 2 years to find the area that suits me best. I'm in the Neuro ICU at Kennestone and really, really love it. I can honestly say that this is the first time I've actually enjoyed nursing. If you want some advice on which departments are best to work for I'll be happy to fill you in once you're ready to apply. I'll probably have graduated from my FNP program by then, so no referral bonus for us to share.
(Maybe a friend of mine would be willing to help out with that).
When do you think you'll get started with your ASN degree?
