Nursing and Allied Health


The Nursing and Allied Health Division has the reputation of being among the elite training programs for healthcare professionals in Tennessee and the tri-state area. The highly competitive admissions process, combined with the personal mentoring of the top-notch faculty, produce graduates that are greatly prepared and highly motivated to enter the workforce and meet the needs of the healthcare community.

Benefits of a Healthcare Career: Working in any healthcare field can be very challenging, but with that challenge come the rewards of a career which affords you the ability to help people, feel good about your job, be in demand by employers, have workplace stability, and work with other professionals with a similar sense of purpose. US Department of Labor Healthcare Career Guide

Benchmark for Success Policy

Prospective Nursing & Allied Health students are encouraged to…

  1. Attend information sessions (required for some programs)
  2. Read program information available on the website
  3. Meet with their assigned academic advisor any time they have questions or concerns about their degree plan or the application process.

Applicants to the associate of applied science (A.A.S.) programs in the Nursing & Allied Health Division are advised that program admission is highly competitive, and most successful candidates have completed the majority of the program's general education requirements prior to their program application. In order to be competitive, candidates must demonstrate a high level of academic success in the general education courses they have attempted.

Students who have declared a major indicating their intention to apply to a competitive entry, limited enrollment program will be evaluated once they have attempted 24 (or more) college level credit hours. If a student's cumulative grade point average (GPA) is below 2.50, the Nursing & Allied Health Division will place an advising hold on the student's academic record. Students with holds will be required to schedule an appointment to meet with an Academic Advisor to discuss their academic plan before registering for the next semester. During the advising meeting the advisor will discuss with the student ways to get back on track with their current major, parallel major options in the healthcare field and potential major options outside of healthcare.
