The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a shortage of more than 1 million registered nurses by 2022. To help address that shortage, University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC)'s College of Nursing is partnering with Memphis-area colleges. The UTHSC College of Nursing Partnership Enrollment Programs (PEPs) will allow eligible students enrolled at LeMoyne-Owen and Rhodes colleges to receive guaranteed full admission into UTHSC's accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program. Students who meet additional requirements will also be able to participate in a bridge Doctor of Nursing (DNP) or Ph.D. program.
