Chatt State has a great program, as does Univ of TN, Chatt for the BSN. So if you go to either of those, you will be doing well. I'm not aware of any other programs in the area that are up to snuff.
The thing you would need to look at is residency requirements, so you don't end up paying out-of-state tuition. If you were to find a school in Georgia, that would also be a problem. However, I don't think there is anything in N. Ga that would really be close enough to be worth it.
Good luck with everything!
