The South College campuses in Knoxville and Nashville, Tennessee, are launching an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) program upon approval by the Tennessee Board of Nursing.

This is the institution’s first ASN program to launch, offered through campus instruction over seven quarters. Students work to build a strong academic foundation and learn fundamental skills required of a nurse generalist, including the basics of medical care, critical thinking, interpersonal skills, and technical competence necessary for taking the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) exam.

“South College remains in tune with the great needs throughout healthcare fields for trained and qualified practitioners and is committed to launching relevant programs such as the Associate of Science in Nursing to positively impact healthcare education,” South College Chancellor Stephen A. South said. “The ASN program opens the door for students to enter the field faster, which saves both time and money while pursuing a degree.”

The prerequisite courses for the new Associate of Science in Nursing program begin in January 2023 in Knoxville and Nashville, and enrollment is now open. Graduates may pursue the Bachelor of Science in Nursing RN to BSN option upon completion.

South College offers multiple healthcare programs across disciplines, from certificate to doctoral levels. In addition, South College students who qualify for financial aid have access to various programs, as do members of the U.S. military, veterans, and their families. The institution offers both student and career services.
