Georgia Baptist College of Nursing of Mercer University began its rich heritage with a vision for the future. Just after the turn of the century, in 1901, the Tabernacle Infirmary and Training School for Christian Nurses opened in a five-room cottage in downtown Atlanta.

The school began with a simple vision of educating students to "heal the needy sick." In 1989, the school became a college which has shaped a nationally-recognized model for nursing education.

In 2001, Georgia Baptist College of Nursing merged with Mercer University. The merger of these two outstanding institutions of higher education is based upon the mutual growth and enhancement of the missions and core values of both entities. In January 2002, Georgia Baptist College of Nursing of Mercer University moved into a new academic building on the Mercer University's Cecil B. Day Graduate and Professional Campus in Atlanta.

The considerable experience of the College's first century of educational excellence strengthens the program as professors, administrators, and students boldly embrace a future filled with promise. Students attending Georgia Baptist College of Nursing of Mercer University become part of a living legacy. The vision still in sight, the College of Nursing invites today's students to enjoy the rewards of a career in nursing that begins with acceptance to a College with rich heritage and a future bright with promise.
