SGSC School of Nursing


The SGSC School of Nursing  currently offers three tracks leading to a professional career in nursing and a new bachelor's degree program in Long-term Healthcare Management, a non-nursing degree.

Our LPN-RN Bridge program and ASN program prepare students to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. The SGSC School of Nursing offers all ASN courses on the Douglas and Waycross campuses. The LPN-RN Bridge Course (NURS 1104) is offered at Douglas or Waycross on a rotational basis. Successful completion entitles one to practice nursing and use the title, Registered Nurse (RN). We also offer a hybrid RN-BSN program for students who are licensed as a Registered Nurse. 

Our newest Bachelor's Degree program in Long-Term Healthcare Management (a non-nursing degree) will develop educational skills and knowledge for managers of long-term healthcare provided in patient residences and long-term care facilities.
