Upcoming reception to celebrate 50 years of nursing at GHC

Georgia Highlands College is celebrating nurses with a reception on November 3 from 4:30PM to 6:30PM at Heritage Hall in Rome. The event also highlights 50 years of nursing at the college.

Organized by the School of Health Sciences at GHC, the reception is open to nursing alumni, current and retired faculty and staff, as well as community partners and friends in the local nursing community.

Food will be provided. Attendees should RSVP at by October 31.

The nursing program at Georgia Highlands College began in 1971 (then Floyd Junior College) under Belen Nora’s leadership in Rome. In 1973, the first class graduated, and over the years, the nursing program has announced 90-100% of the graduates of the nursing program passed their licensure exam on their first attempt, establishing a legacy of success.

Since 2011, students have had access to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing at GHC.

In May 2022, GHC celebrated the 50th graduating class of nurses.
