Emory University

Atlanta, GA 30322

Emory University is a private, non-profit university in Atlanta. The Atlanta location may appeal to students who want access to the city life, including dining, entertainment, and shopping. Emory University has an incredibly low student to faculty ratio. With nine students for every one faculty member, most classrooms offer plenty of interactions between the students and the professors and mentors. The university was founded in 1836 by the Methodist Episcopal Church. It is now affiliated with the United Methodist Church and offers a variety of degree programs for undergraduates and graduates, including nursing degrees.

Students can choose from seven different undergraduates and graduate nursing programs at Emory University. These options include BSN, accelerated BSN, BSN to Ph.D., MSN, accelerated MSN, RN to MSN, and Ph.D. in nursing programs. The traditional BSN program is available for incoming high school graduates. Students will complete various prerequisite courses during their freshman and sophomore years before taking the core BSN curriculum during their final two years. The accelerated program is for those with an existing degree in a non-nursing field, while the RN to MSN path gives registered nurses a way to earn their MSN without having to give up their day job.
