Welcome to Nursing!






At its November 21, 2019 meeting, the TSU Board of Trustees approved the TSU administration's request to discontinue the Associate of Applied Science in Nursing (AASN) program. As a result of this action, applications are no longer being accepted for the AASN program. The program will graduate its last class Spring 2021. Please monitor the website for updates related to the BSN program. All programs remain approved and accredited. If you have questions, please contact Dr. Maria Revell, Interim Executive Director, at 615-963-5251.


The RN-BSN program is currently accepting applications for Summer 2020 admission.  


Admission for the BSN program is suspended until further notice. All programs continue to be accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, LLC (ACEN). For more information, please contact Dr. Maria Revell
