This Nursing program from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center is designed for students who have earned a bachelor's degree (non-nursing) completed prior to acceptance and who are interested in becoming registered nurses. This is an intense, full-time program that prepares graduates for the National Council Licensure Exam for RNs (NCLEX-RN).
Graduates provide care throughout the lifespan including the planning, management, and coordination of care across environments. Due to the rigorous nature of this full-time program, outside employment is strongly discouraged.
