At Carson-Newman, you are a member of a vibrant and active academic nursing community. Carson-Newman's online students can expect the same academic excellence and student support as the on-campus nursing students. 

Dedicated Student Success Support

Online students are matched with a dedicated student success advisor who provides one-on-one guidance from registering for your first class to graduation day. Your student success advisor serves as a personal resource to help round out your learning experience and keep you on track for graduation.

Clinical Placement Support Services

As an online FNP student, you will benefit from stress-free clinical placements. Shortly after enrollment, you will need to complete a placement intake form. A placement specialist will then work with Carson-Newman to source and secure and a quality placement site and preceptor. Once the sites have been approved by the Department of Nursing, Carson-Newman will share the placement site details with you prior to placement.
