Learn more about how to get started on your path to becoming a nurse. The Loewenberg
School of Nursing at the University of Memphis Lambuth Campus will hold an open house
Monday, Sept. 9, from 5 to 7 p.m. in Varnell-Jones Hall, 705 Lambuth Blvd. in Jackson,
There is no charge to attend the event.
For more than 40 years, the Loewenberg School has prepared outstanding nurse leaders,
clinicians and educators. The BSN program at the Lambuth Campus is designed to prepare
high school graduates, transfer students and college graduates for careers in professional
nursing. Those attending will be able to tour classrooms and labs, as well as meet
with representatives from admissions, financial aid, advising and undergraduate and
graduate nursing degree programs.
In 2012, the Executive Committee of the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education
(CCNE) approved the substantive change notification in regards to the implementation
of the RN-BSN (hybrid model) and generic (face-to-face) tracks in the baccalaureate
degree program in nursing at the Lambuth Campus. The CCNE approval means that this
Lambuth Campus program meets the standards of program quality, institutional resource,
faculty qualification, curriculum and meeting the interests of the community.
