Associate of Science Nursing (ASN)
The Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) degree is a two-year program that prepares students to be registered nurses (RNs). North Georgia College & State University’s ASN program is approved by the Georgia Board of Nursing and is fully accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.
The ASN program opens enrollment for new students in the fall semester of each year. North Georgia offers ASN classes in three convenient locations – the university’s main campus in Dahlonega, the University Center at Gainesville State College, and the campus of Lanier Technical College in Forsyth County.
Classes meet during the day only and meet at all sites at the same time. The classes interact with each other and share lectures via live videoconferences, and professors are located at each site to provide additional instruction and answer questions.
The ASN curriculum emphasizes high motivation and self-direction, with the assistance of a faculty that cares about students and individual learning. After successful completion of the required courses, students may sit for Nursing Boards to be a Registered Nurse (RN). The Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree is available for those who are Registered Nurses.
ASN students may take core curriculum courses prior to or during the nursing sequence. Core courses may be taken at North Georgia or credits may be transferred from other academic institutions.
