Bachelor of Science in Nursing
Make a difference in someone’s life. For good.
It takes a lot to be a nurse. It requires skill: knowing the human anatomy like the back of your hand. It takes stamina: holidays spent in the hospital and day shifts that turn into long nights. It takes compassion: the ability to welcome new life into the world and hold a hand as life slips away. Nursing is a career that demands sacrifice. A calling that demands courage. A life that lets you impact countless other lives in the process.
If you feel called to this honorable profession, then Reinhardt University’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) will prepare you to enter the field and build a long and rewarding career.
Students interested in the BSN program must first apply and be accepted to Reinhardt University. Students may apply to the BSN Program in the last semester of completing the pre-nursing curriculum.
Become the nurse that healthcare needs now.
In addition to caring for patients, nurses spend considerable time counseling, consoling, and reassuring their patients’ loved ones. The BSN will prepare you to care for others at the bedside and beyond.
High-Quality Labs & Facilities
BSN students will utilize the labs and classrooms of The Appalachian Campus of Chattahoochee Technical College (CTC) to gain hands-on experience with state-of-the-art equipment. Patient care clinicals will be in the metropolitan area of Atlanta.
The BSN curriculum and our nursing professors will help you prepare for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX), which is required for your nursing license.

“Nurses deal with the biological parts of health, but also the psychological and spiritual aspects that make us human. Every day, nurses have the opportunity to provide care with dignity and respect. To be an advocate for a patient who doesn’t have anyone else. That’s an amazing opportunity, responsibility and privilege.” - Dr. Glynis Blackard
