LPNs and Paramedics may apply for the traditional associate degree nursing program or they may apply for the accelerated option and bridge into the second year of the nursing curriculum after completion of a LPN to RN OR Paramedic to RN Bridge course.
All Associate Degree Nursing program graduates are eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). Successful completion of the NCLEX-RN examination grants state licensure and allows the graduate to assume the responsibilities of a registered nurse (RN), caring for a diverse population in a variety of healthcare settings. Graduates of Gwinnett Tech’s nursing program go on to work in hospitals, physicians’ offices, home healthcare services, nursing care facilities, and various other settings.
In addition to working in healthcare, many nursing program graduates transfer to four-year colleges to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN) degree. Gwinnett Technical College has established transfer agreements to facilitate a student’s transition from RN to the BSN degree.
Gwinnett Tech’s Nursing program has approval by the Georgia Board of Nursing and is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), 3343 Peachtree Road, Suite 850, Atlanta, GA 30326 (www.acenursing.org). View Student Achievement Data here.

Federal regulations require colleges to disclose information regarding their occupational programs that require a state licensure to be employed, and the status of the program for meeting an individual state’s licensure requirements. To determine if a program meets state licensure requirements, locate the program of choice, and view the status that program has for the state you are located. If the state you are located in does not appear in the meets program licensure requirements field, then we cannot guarantee the program of study will be able to lead you to a state occupational licensure in your state.
