RN Programs in Tennessee


Registered Nurses work in various different sectors in the community. This is a very challenging, yet exciting career for the right person whether in the private or public sector.

The first step to knowing if pursuing an RN education and registered nursing career is right for you is to contact the RN programs that you are interested in attending. Admissions counselors will work with students to help them decide if a two-year Associate Degree RN program or a four-year Bachelor’s Degree program is the best choice. The two-year Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) and the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) programs both prepare and qualify graduates to take the national exam that is necessary for gaining an RN license to practice as a professional.
