Welcome to Nursing!

When the fall 2020 semester begins in August, the School of Nursing will offer most courses remotely or in a hybrid format (combination of virtual and on-ground instruction format) for courses that cannot be delivered 100% remotely due to lab or clinical instruction. Whether in person or remote, the School of Nursing is committed to the values of fostering community, ensuring accessibility, and facilitating deep learning across and beyond the academic curriculum.

The School of Nursing and Tennessee State University has prioritized the safety and well-being of its students, faculty and staff and will implement recommended best practices for limiting exposure to COVID-19 in a campus setting.
