Degrees Offered


The College of Nursing  offers programs that lead to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree, Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree, the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree, or the Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AG-ACNP) Certificate. With the exception of the Nurse Anesthesia concentration, the DNP program is an online program with didactic content offered predominantly online and required experiential “practicum” experiences occurring at the university and at clinics and hospitals in the region. The BSN program offers tracks for non-nurses and registered nurses (RNs). The RN-BSN track is offered as either a hybrid program or an online program. In both options in the RN-BSN track experiential “practicum” experiences occur at the university and at area clinics and hospitals. The College of Nursing  offers one post-graduate certificate program. The AG-ACNP postgraduate certificate program for advanced practice nurses seeking a second certification in adult gerontology acute care is an online program with didactic content offered predominantly online and required experiential “practicum” experiences occurring at the university and at clinics and hospitals in the region. The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Nursing Science is offered through the UTHSC College of Graduate Health Sciences . The DNP/PhD program is a dual degree program that is based both in the College of Nursing (DNP) and the College of Graduate Health Sciences (PhD).
