Gordon State College has served the community and region continuously since its founding in 1852, and has been a unit in the University System of Georgia since 1972. After more than three decades of serving the state as a residential two-year college, Gordon State College was named a state college in 2006 and was then asked to develop selective four year programs to address critical state needs. Since that time, many baccalaureate programs have been developed and initiated, two of which are the RN-BSN and BSN programs. Gordon State College serves more than 3300 students with the good work of full- and part-time faculty.
The main campus of Gordon State College is in Barnesville, Georgia, a lovely town located an hour south of Atlanta, and 45 minutes northeast of Macon.
