Pre-Nursing Organization

The Pre-nursing Organization is designed for freshman and sophomore students interested in the nursing major. It gives these students networking opportunities, information sessions, and professional development as they complete their pre-requisite course work to apply to the nursing program. The Pre-nursing Organization meets monthly on the Lipscomb University campus. The Pre-nursing Organization will have officers consisting of:

  • President
  • Vice-President
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary
  • Historian
  • Service Project Coordinator

The Pre-nursing Organization will vote on and participate in two service projects for the academic school year. The Pre-nursing Organization will have two social activities that each member may attend each semester: a Christmas Party or Semi-Formal and an “End of the Year” Picnic or Cook-out.  (Additional fees may apply).
