  • Small class size: 6:1 clinical rotation (compared to 10:1 national average)
  • Job placement: 96% of students are placed in a job within 6 months of graduation
  • Only one of two Nursing Simulation labs in Tennessee (and the first lab to be accredited), state-of-the-art facilities with five dedicated nursing labs

  • Mission, Vision and Philosophy of Education

As a freshman or transfer in our traditional track or a second-degree student in our accelerated track, you will be prepared for licensure as a Registered Nurse (RN).

If you have completed your BSN and gained licensure as an RN, you can continue your education at the master's or doctoral level to prepare for certification as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP). And for those already holding advanced nursing certification, you can earn a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) in our hybrid post-master's program.
