For more than 40 years, Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) has been preparing excellent, practice-ready nurses to serve underserved populations in Appalachia and beyond. In 2017, LMU and AdventHealth (formerly Florida Hospital) partnered to create an off-campus site for LMU’s Caylor School of Nursing to Tampa.
The partnership aims to establish a synergy for continuous quality improvement in both education and the practice of nursing by preparing caring, compassionate and competent nurses. Located at AdventHealth Tampa’s Health Park facility, LMU-Tampa offers accelerated undergraduate nursing degree programs including the Associate Science of Nursing and Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Students at the LMU-Tampa site enjoy small cohort learning in an updated facility with advanced technology. LMU-Tampa students are taught by qualified and caring faculty who put students first. They benefit from early clinical experience.
Both the ASN and BSN programs are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN). The ACEN is recognized as an accrediting body for all types of nursing education by the United States Department of Education and Council for Higher Education Accreditation. Both programs boast a first-attempt pass rate of 100% on the NCLEX-RN, the national licensure exam.
