LeMoyne-Owen College Teams Up With the University of Tennessee Health Science Center

LeMoyne-Owen College, the historically Black educational institution in Memphis, has entered into a partnership agreement with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, which is just five miles from the LeMoyne-Owen campus. The college enrolls just under 1,000 students. Two thirds are women and almost all are African Americans.

Under the agreement, the College of Nursing at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center guarantees admission of qualified LeMoyne-Owen graduates into the College of Nursing’s Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. The program is available to LeMoyne-Owen students who successfully complete a bachelor’s degree with a GPA of 3.0 and a 2.6 GPA for science prerequisites. Students who enter the program can complete their bachelor’s degree in nursing in one year.

Ralph Calhoun, special assistant to the president for academic administration at LeMoyne-Owen College, said that “this partnership is going to give our students the opportunity to focus on STEM careers, especially in nursing, as well as the HBCU experience they desire.”
