Sunday, October 21, the Tennessee Wesleyan College Knoxville Campus will hold an open house from 2 to 4 p.m. TWC’s Knoxville campus offers courses in two programs. Day classes at the campus are provided for RN to BSN nursing students with evening classes offered in Management Excellence, a program that is designed for the working adult and offers emphasis options in accounting, human resource management and healthcare.

In addition to the traditional nursing program located at TWC’s Knoxville campus, this summer the college began offering an online version of the RN to BSN nursing program. The online format offers a flexible schedule designed specifically for registered nurses returning to school to obtain a Bachelor of Science in nursing.

“Both the nursing and ME programs provide students with the academic environment and skills that are necessary to acquire a bachelor’s degree and succeed in these career fields,” said Nancy Brooks, director of the Knoxville evening program. “TWC’s Knoxville campus has an outstanding reputation and an experienced faculty, all at a convenient location for the local and surrounding communities.”

TWC’s new online RN to BSN degree provides an alternative educational opportunity to the college’s traditional nursing program. Students enrolling in the online RN to BSN will experience personal contact and close communication with experienced nursing faculty. The student’s clinical setting will continue to provide an opportunity for meaningful and collaborative relationships between faculty and students.

“With the recent changes in the healthcare system, it is imperative that a highly-educated workforce be prepared and trained to deliver exemplary quality and safe patient care,” said Dr. Suzanne Hine, TWC vice president of academic affairs.

“The RN to BSN online program provides an excellent means for such learning to occur and allows faculty to fulfill their role as facilitators of the adult student learner and nursing professional.”

TWC’s Knoxville campus is comprised of facilities providing students with the latest technology and spacious classrooms and is located on Cogdill Road at the Dutchtown Road exit off Pellissippi Parkway. Sunday’s open house will offer a tour of the facilities as well as further information on the programs that are offered.
