Valdosta State was authorized by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia to offer a nursing program in 1967, effective fall quarter 1968. Development of the program was facilitated by a request from Pineview General Hospital, which later became South Georgia Medical Center, for help preparing registered nurses for the region.

VSU’s School of Nursing, part of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) program; an accelerated program for degree-holding students who want to earn a second degree in nursing; a Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) program, which allows students to pursue careers as either an adult gerontology nurse practitioner, a family nurse practitioner, a clinical nurse leader, or a family psychiatric / mental health nurse practitioner; and a pathway for registered nurses to return to school to earn either a B.S.N. or M.S.N.
