About Our Atlanta ABSN Learning Site
There’s no better time than now to pursue a nursing degree, and Atlanta is a great place to do it. Named one of the 15 best American cities for nurses by Forbes, Atlanta is home to a number of leading hospitals and healthcare networks. In fact, several rank among the “most wired” in the country for their use of technology to improve patient outcomes.
At our Atlanta ABSN learning site, you’ll experience firsthand what it’s like to work in a modern healthcare setting. From the life-like hospital environment to the advanced medical equipment and ultra-realistic medical manikin simulators you’ll find there, everything about our skills and simulation labs has been carefully set up to ensure you are well-prepared to join America’s trusted profession.
Here you’ll learn everything from basic nursing skills, such as wound care, to how to respond to life-threatening situations — all under the guidance of expert faculty instructors who are committed to your success.
Located at the Georgia Baptist College of Nursing’s Atlanta campus, our learning site is also where you’ll take tests and attend practice sessions. Additionally, students are welcome to use the space to meet up with colleagues to study and work on group projects, as well as encouraged to take advantage of open lab hours to practice and master critical nursing skills.
Relocating to Atlanta, Georgia
Atlanta and the surrounding metropolitan area is home to nearly six million people, making it one of the largest cities in the southeastern United States. However, despite its size and rapid growth, Atlanta is surprisingly affordable. With a cost of living well below the U.S. average, Atlanta is the perfect place for students and new nurses. No wonder WalletHub named Atlanta the “#1 Most Affordable Big City” and “#3 City to Start a Career” in 2018. Also of note: Nurses are in high demand in and around Atlanta, and the pay is quite good — according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, nurses in Georgia average about $66,750 a year.
If you’ll be relocating to Atlanta for our Accelerated BSN program, keep in mind that you’ll spend, on average, two to three days a week at our learning site, located at:
3350 Riverwood Parkway
Atlanta, GA 30339
There’s Always Something to Do in Atlanta
