The baccalaureate degree program in nursing, master's degree program in nursing, and
Doctor of Nursing Practice program at King University are accredited by the Commission
on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).
The School of Nursing programs operate on an approval status with the Tennessee Board
of Nursing, and are a member of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing.
For the 2017-18 academic year, the University will temporarily suspend admission to
its Traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program. Students currently enrolled
in the Traditional BSN program and other nursing programs will not be affected by
the decision, and may continue to pursue their degrees under existing curriculum requirements.
In addition, BSN graduates will remain eligible to take the NCLEX. All King nursing
programs remain accredited.
We prepare students for professional nursing practice from the generalist level to
advanced nursing practice in a Christian environment with academic rigor, while preparing
professionals who are resourceful, accountable, and with a passion for serving God,
community and society.
The vision of the school of nursing is to be recognized as a regionally respected,
student-centric nursing program, steadfast in Christian commitment focused on academic
excellence and graduating successful nursing professionals who will serve their communities.
The philosophy of the School of Nursing reflects our beliefs about the role and the
education of the professional nurse at all levels, and represents a comprehensive
blend of nursing theories. Nursing serves society through the competent and compassionate
delivery of direct and indirect healthcare services to individuals, families and communities,
guided by Christian values.
Nursing is both an art and a science. The art of nursing includes the theories related
to caring that promotes respectful relationships and individual worth. The science
of nursing is based upon evidence obtained through research as well as effective interventions
gained through experience.
In an uncertain and rapidly changing world, the professional nurse is a partner, provider,
leader, and an advocate for consumers of health care in an increasingly diverse and
aging population. As a professional discipline, nursing is based on a strong foundation
of knowledge from the humanities, arts and sciences, and inter-disciplinary edification
which together integrate academic and practice components. The professional nurse
functions in a variety of roles addressing the incorporation of cultural, physical,
spiritual, and intellectual dimensions of personhood and their influence on health
and illness prevention. The nurse contributes a unique blend of knowledge, skills,
and holistic care tailored to client’s need. The professional nurse adheres to the
code of ethics and laws that direct professional standards of nursing practice. Through
planned didactic and clinical learning experiences at all levels throughout program
curricula, nursing knowledge, culminating in professional practice is developed.
