JUTN offering a pre-nursing program next semester

KNOXVILLE – As of next semester, Johnson University Tennessee will be offering a pre-nursing program to any students. 

JUTN will offer a two plus two program, run by Monica Nelson, the program’s director. This program will enable students to earn a degree in nursing.

Students will be attending their first two years at Johnson doing prerequisite classes, and will spend their final two years with Tennessee Wesleyan University to finish their degree in nursing.

“My first goal is that we are [a part of] providing the next generation of nurses,” Nelson said. “There’s always been a nursing shortage.”

Johnson’s goal for this program is to lead godly people into nursing so that when they go out into the real world, they’ll show God’s love to all. 

Monica’s advice for the students is that they know the reason of why they want to be a nurse, because it’s too hard if they don’t know the why. 

“I’m really excited about creating this program,” Nelson said. “I love creating culture, and I want this to be a very respectful, kind, and encouraging culture.”

Anyone interested in learning more about this program can email Monica Nelson at mnelson@johnsonu.edu.
