Desiring a career in Nursing? Learn more about the unique opportunity to obtain both an Associate’s and a Bachelor’s degree through the Nursing Partnership program with Welch College and Union University Hendersonville. Students completing the program are well qualified for their practice and are in demand throughout the mid-state. In addition, students with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree are eligible in the future to pursue an advanced practice degree while employed as a nurse.
Welch and Union are both faith-based institutions that emphasize the specific nursing competencies and human relations skills to excel as a nurse. Both are nationally ranked for academic excellence. Students enter as a freshman at Welch College and are eligible for the Tennessee Promise and other academic scholarships. Those who complete the two-year Associate’s degree and meet academic standards are guaranteed admission to Union in Hendersonville. The partnership program offers a low-cost alternative to other private university nursing options with no delay in obtaining a degree and licensure. Students who begin the application process now will receive an additional $2,000 incentive scholarship at Welch.
The Nursing Information Session will be held on the Welch College campus in Coffman Hall on Monday evening, March 29, at 6:30. Interested prospective students, parents, and non-traditional adult students are encouraged to attend.
