CONTINUED PROGRAM GROWTH LEADS TO TWO NEW SCHOOLS
June 29, 2007 - Harrogate, Tennessee — Lincoln Memorial University has announced the separation of the Caylor School of Nursing and Allied Health effective July 1. Due to growth in both the nursing and allied health programs, the two will no longer operate under the leadership of one dean.
The Caylor School of Nursing will remain under the leadership of Dr. Mary Anne Modrcin and will be housed in the new Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine building in Harrogate, Tenn. The Caylor School of Nursing will continue to offer degrees in three nursing programs: the Associate of Science in Nursing (A.S.N.), the Registered Nurse–Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN) program and the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program with a family nurse practitioner concentration. Additionally, LMU is exploring the feasibility of expanding its MSN degree program to include a nurse anesthetist concentration. The University has received Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) approval to pursue the new concentration and will move forward with program development.
The largest undergraduate program at LMU, nursing is offered at the main campus in Harrogate and at four extended sites including Alcoa, Tenn. at Alcoa City Center - Blount Memorial Hospital Learning Center; Knoxville at St. Mary’s Medical Center; Madisonville, Tenn. at Hiwassee College; and Corbin, Ky. at Baptist Regional Medical Center.
The School of Allied Health Sciences will include the veterinary technology, medical technology, athletic training and social work programs. Veterinary Technology Program Director and Chair of the Department of Allied Health Dr. Randy Evans has been selected as Dean of the new school, effective on July 1.
The veterinary technology program offers three degree options: Associate of Applied Science in Veterinary Technology (AAS), Associate of Science in Veterinary Animal Science (AS) and Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Technology (BS). The program is housed at the Phillips Center for Veterinary Technology on LMU’s main campus. The medical technology, athletic training and social work programs offer a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree. The social work program was previously housed in the department of social sciences in the Paul V. Hamilton School of Arts and Sciences.
“Though this change will not effect the day-to-day operation of these programs, it will help the overall institutional effectiveness of the University,” LMU President Dr. Nancy B. Moody said. “Both Dr. Modrcin and Dr. Evans have provided superior leadership in their previous roles and I anticipate this change will allow them to be even more successful in the future.”
Lincoln Memorial University is a values-based learning community dedicated to providing educational experiences in the liberal arts and professional studies. The main campus is located in Harrogate, Tennessee.
