Numerous job opportunities exist for qualified nurses in the state of Georgia, especially in the fields of Women's Health, Occupational Health, Psychiatry, Midwifery, forensic studies and substance abuse treatment.  Many clinical nurses in Georgia find employment in the state's more than 150 general hospitals.  Others populate doctors' offices, schools, rehab centers, long term care facilities and private homes.  Some nurses work in non clinical settings.  These include teachers, counselors, researchers and administrators.  However, no matter where you end up working as a nurse in Georgia, you'll need a nursing degree of some kind, and these days there are many kinds to choose from.

The BS/BSN is a Bachelor of Science degree in the field of Nursing.  It is a four-year academic degree, usually granted by a University.  A BSN garners higher salaries and further career advancement than lower-level nursing certifications like an Associates Degree (ASN/AND), which is a two year certificate program.  According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, a Registered Nurse in the state of Georgia with a BSN degree earns, on average, a starting salary of more than $60,000 a year.
