VUSN/Lipscomb Partnership Evolves

Lipscomb University partnered with Vanderbilt University School of Nursing five years ago to initiate a baccalaureate degree in nursing. The program was designed so Lipscomb students would take five semesters of liberal arts courses at Lipscomb, complete three semesters of pre-specialty generalist nursing curriculum at VUSN, and graduate with a bachelor of science degree in nursing from Lipscomb.

“We have seen this program thrive, and now it’s time for a natural evolution of the program to move to being offered solely by Lipscomb University,” said Linda Norman, D.S.N., R.N., senior associate dean for Academics at Vanderbilt University School of Nursing.

Beginning in January 2011, Lipscomb University School of Nursing will begin offering the curriculum on its campus under the direction of a nursing dean and with its own nursing faculty.

The joint program will have yielded 140 baccalaureate-prepared nurses.
