Welcome to the Loewenberg School of Nursing at University of Memphis! We offer learner-centered, accessible, innovative, and high quality undergraduate and graduate
programs that are fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) at both Memphis and Lambuth campuses. Our distinguished faculty, motivated
students, dedicated staff, and community partners share a common goal of preparing healthcare leaders and promoting health of the global community.
The Future of Nursing reported by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) recommends that nurses practice to the full extent of their education and
training, achieve higher levels of education and training through an improved education
system that promote seamless academic progression, and be full partners in redesigning
health care in the United States. In addition, effective workforce planning and policy
require better data collection and an improved information infrastructure. At this
critical time, nursing education is transformed to prepare competent graduates who
meet the ever changing healthcare needs.
I welcome you to browse our website, www.memphis.edu/nursing, to learn about the LSON. Together, we strategically build vision to excel as we
are dreamers, thinkers, and doers!
