Welcome to the College of Nursing at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville! The strength of the College of Nursing rests in the hands, hearts, and minds of compassionate caregivers. In an era of unprecedented challenges and an acute nationwide nursing shortage, our students are stepping up to the front lines of practice, and to the frontiers of research. Our graduates enter the world of nursing well-prepared to meet critical healthcare needs.
The College of Nursing currently enrolls more than 400 students in our undergraduate nursing programs, 150 students in our master’s program, and 30 in our doctoral program. Since we opened our doors in 1972, we have awarded more than 3,500 bachelor’s degree and more than 1,200 graduate degrees.
Our graduates consistently achieve pass rates on licensure and certification exams that exceed state and national averages, and our alumni are successful in all areas of nursing and in graduate education. Graduates of the program are in great demand and are prepared for professional careers that serve the citizens of Tennessee, our nation as well as the global community. Many of our graduates assume leadership roles and management positions in local, national and international health care agencies.
Our faculty is comprised of highly skilled teachers, researchers and practitioners. Many hold doctoral degrees and are certified as nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists. Mentoring and close faculty-student relationships are a priority.
Our students have the opportunity to participate in hands-on, clinical experiences in major hospitals, private practices, community clinics, health departments and schools in the region. Our concentration areas in disaster response, family practice, and nurse anesthesia attract extremely qualified students and prepare them for highly-skilled positions.
READY FOR THE WORLD
Our international and intercultural experiences take students to remote and underserved areas, where they learn to successfully interact with a variety of patient populations while gaining hands-on clinical nursing skills. Some students travel to villages in Central and South America, while others go to needy communities in our own country. These real-world experiences are invaluable, as they help prepare future nurses to deliver healthcare to our culturally diverse population.
