About

The undergraduate program offered by Mercer University is comprised of two tracks, both culminating in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree and preparing graduates to continue their education at the master's level.

Overview

Key facts

  • The traditional prelicensure track is designed for students who are not yet licensed nurses and seek a two year option to complete the BSN degree.  This track is offered on the Atlanta campus of Mercer University. Satisfactory completion of the prelicensure track and approval from a state board of nursing entitles the graduate to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).  A successful NCLEX-RN exam score leads to licensure as a registered nurse prepared for general practice in hospitals, community agencies, and other health care environments.
  • The  second degree Accelerated track is for students based in Atlanta who already have a non-nursing bachelor’s degree but want to switch careers. This Nursing program at Mercer University allows you to earn a BSN degree in as few as 12 months of accelerated education.
  • The RN-BSN Completion Track is for Registered Nurses (RNs) who graduated from an accredited associate degree or diploma nursing program
