Curriculum and Plans of Study

The associate of science in nursing (ASN) program is a 66 semester hour program that consists of 30 credit hours of general education courses and 36 credit hours of nursing courses. In addition to the traditional ASN program, Georgia Highlands College offers career mobility options for licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and paramedics.

The nursing program at GHC is a competitive admittance program. Students seeking entrance to the ASN degree will initially be admitted and enrolled in the Associate of Science in Health Professions degree while attempting to complete prerequisite courses needed to apply and be admitted to the ASN degree program.
