Darton State College is not currently accepting applications for the Traditional Hybrid and Bridge Nursing Program.
The Fort Benning Nursing Program has full approval from the Georgia Board of Nursing, the Accrediting Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN), and from the University System of Georgia.
The Accelerated Healthcare Professional to RN Bridge Program is 3.5 semesters in length and designed for individuals in selected healthcare professions. Individuals interested in the Healthcare Professional Bridge must hold a valid Paramedic certification, LPN license, or Army Medic 68W M6 certification with a minimum of one year of experience. In contrast, the Ft. Benning traditional/hybrid nursing program is 5 semesters in length. Both programs are a mix between online and classroom learning.
The programs maximize the coursework available online through a blended program of online and face-to-face components. The clinical rotations and necessary lab experiences are conducted on base or in the Columbus area as needed at times convenient to the military community.
Darton State College is a nationally recognized leader in online education with strong institutional support, commitment to quality and a very high retention rate for online programs. We graduate highly qualified healthcare professionals who consistently score high on their professional license exams.
