BEST IN GEORGIA: The GCSU undergraduate nursing program on a serious roll


Between the pandemic and an aging population, nursing programs are becoming more and more crucial around the United States.

Georgia College & State University is most certainly playing its part.

U.S. News & World Report recently tabbed the undergraduate nursing program at Georgia College & State University as "the top public undergraduate nursing program in Georgia" in its much-ballyhooed "Best Colleges List."

This news comes on the heels of GCSU adding a third nursing cohort earlier this year, which will help ease the "severe shortage of nurses in Georgia due to a rapidly aging population and the retirement of long-time nurses."


“It is estimated that an additional 175,900 registered nurses (RNs) will exit the workforce each year for personal reasons or through retirement, and the field is expected to grow by 7%,” said Josie Doss, interim director and associate professor of the SON. “Though Georgia has around 100,000 RNs, we still have one of the lowest densities in the nation. We’re preparing nurses to fill that need.”
