​Our Priorities

The focus of the College of Nursing’s journey is on four priority areas:

Faculty Support

As the college continues on the path of excellence, increasing faculty support helps build an even stronger academic research program.

Graduate Fellowships

There is a critical need for advanced practice nurses and leaders in the health care industry. We are committed to meeting this demand by preparing caregivers, advanced practitioners, professors, researchers, and nurse executives.

Undergraduate Scholarships

Named scholarships are critical to attracting and retaining the most outstanding students. An enhanced pool of scholarship dollars supports our students and is essential to maintaining a high quality life for citizens of Tennessee, the nation, and the world.

State-of-the-Art Facilities

Every possible space in the College of Nursing building is occupied by students and faculty. To meet the nursing demands of our state and continue to provide education in a state-of-the-art facility, we require additional space.


The College of Nursing has taught me the unique value in nursing as a whole and has shown me an irreplaceable joy found in bedside nursing. I have learned that patients are not merely room numbers but human beings in unimaginable circumstances. The College of Nursing has shown me that being a nurse is not just a career, but who I am.
