We know how to prepare our students. This success - and the dream behind it - started with the interest and generosity of the University's many friends. University medical Center generously provided an area for the Learning Resources Laboratory, major educational equipment and supplies for nursing skills simulation
Many other facilities and organizations in the Middle Tennessee area contributed seed money, student scholarship moneyor equipment/supplies to enable Cumberland to meet the needs of the Middle Tennessee area for well-prepared nurses. In the spring of 2004, the school’s name was changed to the Jeanette Rudy School of Nursing in honor of Dr. Jeanette Cantrell Rudy, a retired nurse and longtime friend and benefactor of Cumberland University. Today, the program is growing exponentially – and successfully.
Cumberland has a strong reputation of placing nursing students in jobs of their choice.
Four academic tracks are available to help:
- General students obtain a B.S.N. in eight semesters.
- Registered nurses (RN's) holding diplomas or Associate Degrees upgrade to B.S.N. status. (click here for more information)
- Students holding baccalaureate or university parallel degrees in areas other than nursing obtain a B.S.N. degree without meeting a second set of core requirements.
- Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), holding a current LPN license, upgrade to B.S.N. status.
Our B.S.N. program is nationally accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission and is approved by the Tennessee Board of Nursing.
