The mission of the Jeanette M. Travis School of Nursing at Martin Methodist College is to prepare nurses at the baccalaureate level of academic rigor, based on the liberal arts and sciences, who are critical thinkers, lifelong learners and leaders in the profession.

The School of Nursing offers a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN). After successful completion of the pre-licensure program, students are eligible to apply to the Tennessee State Board of Nursing to take the NCLEX-RN (registered nurse licensure examination). The nursing program has full approval of the Tennessee State Board of Nursing and is accredited by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).                                                       

The School of Nursing prepares the professional nurse for leadership roles in a variety of health care settings. A variety of agencies in South Central Tennessee and Northern Alabama are used as clinical learning facilities for students. Students are responsible for providing their own transportation to and from Martin Methodist College as well as assigned clinical agencies. Clinical experiences are selected to augment nursing theory and provide the learner with the opportunity to develop clinical competencies in the delivery of entry level nursing care.

The nursing curriculum builds on a foundation of liberal arts and science courses that provide the basis for critical thinking, decision-making, communication, therapeutic nursing interventions and leadership. On completion of the baccalaureate nursing program, graduates will be prepared as generalists for entry-level practice to meet the following competency outcomes:

Use Evidence based practice to provide, design, and manage safe, culturally sensitive, and cost effective patient centered nursing care to clients across the life span in all settings.

  1. Incorporate inter-professional communication in all aspects of care with clients, colleagues, and community partners.
  2. Integrate evidence based practice, nursing theory, and knowledge from other disciplines to guide nursing practice.
  3. Assume professional responsibility and legal/ethical accountability in professional nursing practice.
  4. Demonstrate proficiency with informatics and information systems to provide, manage, and document safe, effective, patient centered care.
