Nursing is an important and ever-growing profession in the United States, and nurses are constantly in demand. Employers are looking for the most highly skilled applicants, and that typically means a nurse with more education and training. Nursing education can take the form of an associate’s (ADN), bachelor’s (BSN), or master’s (MSN) degree. The latter two degrees can only be earned from the state's accredited four-year colleges and universities.

Nursing is arranged in a hierarchy according to education and responsibility, just like many other professions.

The first level in the nursing hierarchy is the certified nursing assistant (CNA). CNAs provide basic quality-of-life care for patients. CNAs need a high school diploma / GED and a brief course of post-secondary training, after which they are required to pass a certification examination. CNAs in Georgia can expect an average salary of $21,910 per year.
