A recent contribution to Kennesaw State University from Wellstar Health System is a game changer for both KSU and the state of Georgia. Georgia is suffering from a severe nursing shortage. KSU, home to one of the state’s premier nursing programs, does not have the capacity to serve all the exceptional students seeking placement in our highly competitive program. Annually, the university is only able to accept approximately 20 percent of KSU students seeking to study nursing.
