About the College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences

Because Lipscomb takes special care to ensure our academic offerings dovetail with market needs and placements, we founded the College of Pharmacy in 2006 and expanded to the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in 2010. And because we take special care to educate our students in the most technologically advanced facilities, we built a new School of Nursing and Health Sciences building in 2012 and we recently launched a School of Physician Assistant Studies in 2018.

You are in the midst of making one of the most significant decisions in your life: which university you will entrust to prepare you for a successful, meaningful life in health care. And, as they say in the airlines, we know you have a lot of choices.

What I want you to know is that Lipscomb is a very different choice. Yes, at Lipscomb you benefit from the academic excellence and rigorous professional preparation that put our graduates in very high demand. We continually receive very high accolades for the depth and scope of our programs from accrediting bodies. Our placement rate upon graduation into further professional education and employment is consistently in near the 100th percentile.

But what makes this choice different is that you will receive a superior education in the health science of your choice that is integrated with Christian faith and practice. We deeply believe that health care, wellbeing and faith are closely related. We also know that the type of caring, giving people who are attracted to health care professions are looking for opportunities in their education to use these elements. That’s why community and global service are so much a part of our programs. Graduates tell us we do this well, and it is what they most value about their Lipscomb experience.

If this sounds like the kind of education you are looking for, visit.
