2023 Nurse.org Best Ranked Nursing Schools

We have once again been recognized by an independent organization as the top nursing school in the state of Tennessee for their 2023 Nurse.org Best Nursing Schools by State Rankings! You can see the full list of the top rankings on this page: https://nurse.org/education/top-10-best-nursing-schools-in-tennessee but if you are just curious, the remainder of the top 10 schools are included in this order – TN Tech, Union, UTK, MTSU, LMU, Belmont, Bethel University, Lipscomb and the University of Memphis. For more information click here!

The School of Nursing was chosen by a panel of 5 registered nurses with over 55 years of combined nursing experience and 7 nursing degrees. They considered our school’s reputation, accreditation, NCLEX pass rate, tuition, and acceptance rates to determine its ranking.  Nurse.org has told us that more than 1.5M current and future nurses access their website and they utilize email newsletters, social channels, and award-winning podcast to reach their audience. With this recognition, anyone in Tennessee or who wishes to come to this part of the country to earn a BSN will see what the UTC School of Nursing offers. We are proud of this accomplishment!
