We are LCON!

The more than 1,000 students in the Loewenberg College of Nursing represent the best and brightest on campus. The two campuses in Memphis and Jackson, Tenn., offer a variety of educational, professional and personal experiences to students, as well as unparalleled opportunities for experiential learning through clinicals as well as opportunities for employment after graduation.

Students on the main campus in Memphis study in the $60 million Community Health Building, situated on the ever-growing Park Avenue Campus. The 25th largest city in the United States, Memphis is a diverse metropolitan community with a robust healthcare community that includes 25 hospitals and one of the world's leading healthcare research facilities. 

Jackson-area students are located on the historic Lambuth Campus, combining the power of a large, four-year institution with a small-town atmosphere. Students enjoy individualized learning and appreciate tailored academic coaching and mentoring. LCON-Lambuth's partnership with West Tennessee Healthcare provides nursing students access to one of the largest healthcare facilities in West Tennessee. View LCON Student Bulletin >>
