Nursing College Comes to Atlanta

A nursing college based in Illinois is opening a new campus in Atlanta, GA to accept students into the nursing program beginning on April 30th.

The Chamberlain College of Nursing opened the Atlanta campus in Perimeter Center, complete and equipped with Chamberlain’s SIMCARE CENTER™.

The SIMCARE CENTER™ is a state-of-the-art clinical environment which offers nursing students the opportunity to study their trade in a safe, simulated health care environment. Another component of the new campus is the school’s Center for Academic Success; a resource center offering academic support.

The nursing college picked Georgia for their new campus because it is one of the states in the U.S. facing a critical shortage of qualified nurses and allied health care professionals. The state has a projected shortage of over 30,000 nurses in the decade between 2010 and 2020, so the need for immediate training in the field is crucial in the state. Chamberlain is able to serve a portion of the 2,000 or so students that were not accepted into BSN and RN programs in nursing schools because of budgeting and other school limitations in the state.

The new nursing college in Atlanta will provide nursing students with the ability to earn a Bachelor of Science in nursing within three to four years for full time students. (Three without summer breaks.) All of the regulatory agencies in the state approved the curriculum, degree program, and campus for the nursing college late last year, so the school will be open for business this spring and is currently accepting applications. This spring term at the nursing college’s new campus begins on April 30th.

Students interested in attending the nursing college will have the opportunity to attend an open house event (RSVP only) on March 27th from 3 PM to 7 PM and on March 29th from 3 PM to 7 PM.
