About Mercer University
By choosing our Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program, you’ll earn a BSN degree from one of the nation’s most respected universities. One that the Princeton Review has listed among the top universities in North America for more than two decades; as well as ranked number 11 on its 2016 list of colleges for students who want to change the world.
Founded in 1833, Mercer University’s long history of academic excellence began at a time when it was one of just a handful of universities in the South. Since that time, Mercer has grown to include 12 colleges and schools, including business, education, engineering, law, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and theology, and spanning 130 degree programs.
Georgia Baptist College of Nursing
Mercer’s Georgia Baptist College of Nursing is the oldest nursing program in the state of Georgia, having started at a time when most nurses still learned by way of apprenticeship and received little formal training. In 2001, the College of Nursing merged with Mercer University to become the Mercer University Georgia Baptist College of Nursing. Since our founding in 1902 as the Tabernacle Infirmary Training School for Christian Nurses, we’ve educated more than 8,250 professional nurses.
As a Mercer University ABSN student, you’ll be part of a highly supportive learning environment committed to fostering academic excellence, innovative professional practice, social responsibility and service to others, and the promotion of health and quality of life.
Though no longer denominationally affiliated, Mercer University and the Georgia Baptist College of Nursing continue to embrace the Baptist principles of intellectual and religious freedom, and Christian caring.
