ATLANTA -- Students interested in continuing their nursing education beyond a baccalaureate degree should attend the Graduate Tea at Mercer University's Georgia Baptist College of Nursing. The program, to be held Wednesday, Oct. 13, from 10 a.m. until noon on Mercer's Atlanta campus, will address questions about the master's of science program in nursing.
Dr. Linda A. Streit, associate dean for the graduate program, will present the general curriculum plan for both areas of concentration (nursing education and acute/critical care of the adult). Meg McGinness, director for the Office of Student Financial Planning, will discuss financial aid available for graduate nursing students.
About Georgia Baptist College of Nursing:
The founding of Georgia Baptist College of Nursing at Mercer University in 1902 was born out of a vision to establish a Baptist institution for the training of "Christian nurses" to "heal the needy sick." More than 100 years later, some 6,000 men and women have graduated from the College of Nursing, now part of one of the largest Baptist universities in the world since its 2001 merger with Mercer. The College requires students to undergo a unique three-year clinical sequence and offers clinical experiences in more than 40 of the Atlanta area's most recognized healthcare agencies.
