The ASN Bridge Pathway option is offered on the Swainsboro campus and allows qualified individuals who possess current, Georgia unrestricted licensure as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) or Paramedic (EMT-P) to bridge his or her education and training into the Associate of Science in Nursing Degree. The traditional option course work (RNSG courses) is completed within four (4) semesters. The ASN Bridge Pathway option allows qualified applicants to complete nursing program course work (RNSG-B courses) within three (3) semesters. The ASN program is designed with curriculum to provide students with the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes to practice competently and safely as an entry level nurse in acute, long-term, and community healthcare settings. Students receive classroom instruction and coordinated clinical experiences in the nursing care of clients at local hospitals and community agencies under the supervision and guidance of the nursing faculty.
