Open Houses & Information Sessions

Undergraduate Open House & Information Sessions

Due to the high volume of individual visit requests for prospective incoming freshman students, the College of Nursing holds High School Open House Sessions for high school junior and senior students and their families to provide information about the program. High school students have the opportunity to meet current nursing student ambassadors and nursing advisors. High School Open House Sessions include information about the freshman direct admissions process as well as nursing curriculum information and highlights of the College of Nursing. Most sessions last approximately one hour. These meetings are for informational purposes only and students will not be advised during this session. Participation in group sessions in no way influences admissions decisions.

High School Open House Sessions are held from 2:30 pm-4:00 pm at the following location:

College of Nursing, Room 203
1200 Volunteer Boulevard
Knoxville, TN 37996
