I plan to transfer and eventually graduate from Kennesaw State University because I believe that I will have more opportunities if I graduate from there. Georgia Southern University and Kennesaw State University are both in the top ten nursing schools in Georgia and are well known throughout the state for their excellent nursing programs. Kennesaw State and Georgia Southern both require students to have completed the standard core courses as well as prerequisite classes such as Anatomy I and II, Pathophysiology, and microbiology, before they are allowed to apply to the nursing program. Both nursing programs also require you to pass an entrance exam, also known as the A2 exam, before you are formally accepted into the Nursing program. In order to graduate with a BSN from either college, students are required to complete a certain number of nursing courses throughout their junior and senior year as well as work a certain amount of hours in the hospital for first-hand experience. Although Georgia Southern is a good school, I personally would choose to graduate with a nursing degree from Kennesaw State. Getting firsthand experience, especially in nursing, is very important, and Kennesaw State is located in a more metropolis area which has allowed it to be fairly close to at least a dozen miles away. Whereas the closest hospital to Georgia Southern is located an hour away in Savannah. Graduating from somewhere where there are multiple hospitals would also give you better odds when looking for a job following graduation. I personally think that since both colleges’ curriculum is nearly identical, Kennesaw State would be a better decision for someone interested in the Nursing field.
