FHU / Dickson Nursing Program Accepting Applications

Dickson, Tenn. - Mar 23, 2016

The nursing program at Freed-Hardeman University / Dickson is currently accepting applications. Accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and Tennessee State Board of Nursing, the Dickson program recently named Robert Spencer, a seasoned nurse educator and practitioner, as its new director.

FHU's B.S.N. program will be housed in the new $1.1 million health sciences wing at the Renaissance Center. It features labs for anatomy and physiology, biology, chemistry, microbiology and nursing skills. The wing will also include a nursing simulation observation room and a nursing classroom. Biology and chemistry classes taught by Nashville State Community College began utilizing the new learning space in January 2016.

"I am excited to be part of Freed-Hardeman University's effort to bring nursing education to Dickson and the surrounding area," Spencer said. "I look forward to the Dickson campus producing high-quality and compassionate nurses."
