In collaboration with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Lane College students will now have a direct pathway to continue their education in nursing once receiving their associate’s degree from Lane, a partnership that was announced on Jan. 18.

Logan Hampton, president of Lane College, (far right) speaks to the media about a partnership between the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and Lane to create a nursing program at Lane while he is surrounded by Lane students and faculty as well as faculty from the center on Wednesday, January 18, 2023, in Jackson, Tenn.

At a press conference on Lane’s campus, Lane students and administrators as well as faculty from UTHSC met in Bray Hall to discuss the launch of the program. One benefit of the program is the newly amended biology major’s track for pre-nursing which allows students to take all courses needed for a degree in nursing from the biology department.

Melanie Van Stry, Lane College Chair of the Division of Natural and Physical Sciences and professor of Biology, spoke to the importance of this partnership between the two institutions.
