Students at Mercer's College of Liberal Arts who aspire to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Mercer's Georgia Baptist College of Nursing>> (or at any other nursing school) are considered to be on the "pre-nursing track." Pre-nursing students at the College of Liberal Arts>> must familiarize themselves with the track expectations and requirements detailed in the Pre-Nursing Track Fundamentals handbook and are encouraged to obtain track-specific advising from the pre-professional advisor.
Pre-nursing students should note that the pre-nursing program is not a major offered by Mercer University, 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).
Note that students may also prepare for nursing school at Mercer's Penfield College>>, which offers classes at many of Mercer's satellite campuses around Georgia. Penfield College students are encouraged to obtain track-specific information from the handbook below and advising from their academic advisors.
