Associate Professor of Nursing
The nursing program at Freed-Hardeman University provides graduates with a foundation of Christian values on which nursing knowledge, skills, and attitudes are learned for the purpose of providing holistic care to individuals, groups, and communities in need and for succeeding in the dynamic and challenging discipline of professional nursing.
The vision of the FHU Department of Nursing is to be recognized as a Christ-centered, student-focused community of learners committed to academic excellence, lifelong learning, professionalism, and service to others.
The Department of Nursing offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing with a curriculum that is divided into two sections. The first section consists of general education content derived from the natural sciences, behavioral sciences, liberal arts, humanities, and Bible. The second section consists of nursing courses with content from the major nursing areas: concepts of nursing, skills for healthcare professionals, care of adults, children, maternity patients, and the mentally, as well as physically, ill. Nursing care of all age groups, promotion and maintenance of health, prevention and detection of illness, and restoration for health are included. Clinical, simulation, and skills lab are included. Any student interested in nursing should focus on the Bachelor of Science in Nursing 4-Year plan.
Nursing courses must be taken in sequence. Nursing courses involve lecture, independent learning experiences, and clinical experiences within the community. Students must earn a grade of "C" or better in all nursing courses taken in order to progress to the next semester of the nursing program.
