ABAC School of Nursing and Health Sciences 

The ABAC Associate Degree Registered Nurse program was established in 1962 and has always been a widely respected RN program in the state.  The employment rate is 100% and healthcare employers actively seek out ABAC nursing graduates.  Nursing, a top major at ABAC, appeals to both traditional and non-traditional students.

 The nursing program at ABAC prepares registered nurses through two educational tracks.  We offer the Generic track which has a traditional design and the One Year Registered Nurse track which is an accelerated bridge program.  Both programs earn students an Associate’s Degree in Nursing and qualifies them to take the NCLEX-RN.  Students wishing to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing may take core courses here at ABAC through the Transfer track.

 The nursing program is approved by the Georgia Board of Nursing, 237 Coliseum Drive, Macon, Georgia 31217-3858 (phone: 487-207-2440) and is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, Georgia 30326 (phone: 404-975-500).

 The School of Nursing and Health Sciences requires screening examinations, criminal background checks, and drug screens upon acceptance and throughout the nursing program as required by clinical agencies. A student, who is denied access to a clinical agency due to the results of a criminal background check or a drug screen, will be dismissed from the program due to the inability to complete the program requirements.

NOTE:  Please visit the “Resources and Forms” link to view NEW HESI Admission Assessment (A2) Requirements.  “A student failing to meet the 75% minimum content exam score after two attempts will not be eligible to retake the exam until the failure(s) are older than ONE year.”  This statement is a change from previous requirements.
