Clayton State University, Gordon State College Partner to Form Master’s Nursing Degree Pathway

MORROW, GA — Clayton State University is making it easier for undergraduate students at Gordon State College (GSC) to earn an advanced degree in nursing.

Under this new agreement, a GSC student who earns a Bachelor of Science in Nursing will be eligible for priority review for admittance to Clayton State to earn a Master of Science in Nursing — Family Nurse Practitioner degree.

“This agreement allows for another opportunity to formalize collaboration with our colleagues at Gordon State College.

There is only good to be found in partnerships that can benefit our shared students. I am grateful to the colleagues that helped make this agreement possible.”
