Carson-Newman College Department of Nursing offers a rigorous baccalaureate nursing curriculum that includes academic and clinical performance requirements. To be awarded a bachelor’s degree in nursing, the student must successfully complete both elements of the program. Students who receive a nursing degree from Carson-Newman College will have been exposed to the skills and knowledge necessary to attain licensure and to perform the clinical tasks normally expected of registered nurses. Successfully attaining licensure and securing employment as a nurse is entirely dependent on the efforts of the graduate and the economic forces influencing the health care industry. These factors are beyond the control of the Carson-Newman College School of Nursing and Behavioral Health.
The BSN Program is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and approved by the Tennessee Board of Nursing.

Baccalaureate education in nursing is comprised of liberal arts and sciences, humanities and nursing. The purpose is to prepare a professional who functions autonomously with a focus on the health care needs of clients of all ages in a variety of settings. The baccalaureate nurse explains the rationale for nursing actions and collaborates with the client to determine acceptable outcomes. An integral part of baccalaureate preparation in nursing is the ability to apply knowledge to the promotion of client health.
