Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN Bridge)

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN Bridge Program) was deactivated as of August 11, 2021. A teach-out plan is underway, and no new students will be accepted into the program. If you are currently enrolled in this program, please consult with your advisor to ensure degree completion within the teach-out period.

For more information, visit our teach-out plan FAQ.  









The East Georgia State College (EGSC) RN-BSN Bridge Program entails a total of 120 credit hours (including 60 core credit requirements hours, 30 credit hours for transferred nursing courses, and 30 credit hours for nursing courses taken at EGSC). As reflected in the Georgia RN-BSN Articulation Model, the 30 hours of transferred nursing credit will be held in escrow until students successfully complete 6.67 hours in the RN-BSN Bridge program. Successful completion of these 120 credit hours will make the RN-BSN Bridge Program student eligible for graduation with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree from EGSC. For more information, contact the Nursing Department at 478-289-2188.
