Students who aspire to enter the field of nursing at the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) level or higher are considered to be on the "pre-nursing track."
Pre-nursing students enrolled in the College of Liberal Arts>> are often interested in earning their BSN degree from Mercer's Georgia Baptist College of Nursing>>, and should investigate the Special Consideration Program for Nursing>>. Pre-nursing students should note that the pre-nursing program is not a major offered by the College of Liberal Arts, and that there is no degree or certification earned for successful completion of the curriculum. However, completion of the Mercer pre-nursing curriculum followed by successful completion of the nursing program at the GBCN leads to the degree Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN).
