Whitson-Hester School of Nursing


Welcome to the Tennessee Technological University Whitson-Hester School of Nursing homepage! We appreciate your interest in our School and encourage you to explore the links provided to learn more about the study of Nursing at Tennessee Technological University.

The student group is diverse and consists of students seeking the nursing degree for their initial career, students entering nursing for a career change, current RNs seeking a Master’s degree in nursing, and RNs returning to school for the baccalaureate degree. Interacting with such a diverse group of students and a faculty with a broad range of experience and interests provides opportunity for the personal and intellectual development needed for the student preparing for the role of the professional nurse.
