With cohort groups in Johnson City, Kingsport, Sevierville, Knoxville, Chattanooga, and Cleveland, TN beginning each Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters, our online RN-BSN program is designed to provide pathways to students holding the associate degree or the hospital certificate. The program is available full-time, which is 3 semesters of nursing courses, and part-time, which is 5 semesters of nursing courses. Both options are user-friendly and designed for working adults with many opportunities for professional growth.
Because of state regulatory requirements for nursing programs, students residing outside the state of Tennessee may be required to complete clinical hours in a Tennessee institution or agency. Students wishing to complete clinical courses in their home state may incur additional expenses and/or program time, to cover faculty licensure, travel, and program approval in their state. Regulations governing nursing and higher education vary on a state-by-state basis and cannot always be anticipated in advance of student application to the program.
