Students at Pellissippi State Community College’s Friendsville location in Blount
County, Tenn., now have the opportunity to transfer into King University’s Graduate
and Professional Studies Online Programs and complete their bachelor’s degree. The
Blount County campus is located at 2731 West Lamar Alexander Parkway in Friendsville,
Thanks to an articulation agreement established between the two schools, Pellissippi
State students, upon completion of their associate’s degree, may enter directly into
the GPS program with priority consideration for admission. King’s GPS program provides
adult-oriented degree programs designed to reduce the challenges adult learners face.
“This collaboration creates not only opportunities for Pellissippi State students
to earn four-year degrees without having to leave the community but also prepares
them for employment in careers that are in-demand in the college’s service area,”
said Micah Crews, associate vice president for Enrollment Management Graduate and
Professional Studies Online Programs at King.
Pellissippi State students in Friendsville can enter the Bachelor of Business Administration
(BBA) degree program or the Bachelor of Science for Registered Nurses (RN-BSN) program
beginning fall 2013
“The convenient location is ideal for Pellissippi State students because they are
already acclimated to the campus,” said Mona Salyer, Director of Recruitment for GPS
at King. “Students will be able to complete the bachelor’s degree program in as little
as 16 months.”
“Extending one’s education to include a bachelor’s degree provides increased career
opportunities, whether a student is seeking to advance their career or is transitioning
from his or her current area of expertise into a new one,” said Crews.
King’s BBA program offers adults a high quality, undergraduate degree designed to
prepare the adult learner for a career by endowing them with excellent business, communication,
and critical thinking skills that lead to a lifetime of service, stewardship, and
success. The BBA program allows students to integrate the management knowledge, philosophy,
skills, theory, and tools for a successful career in the 21st century.
Accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and approved by
the Tennessee Board of Nursing, King’s RN-BSN program is designed to create a transformational
learning experience, enhance personal and professional skill development, and meet
the needs of adult learners.
Students in the RN-BSN degree program apply competencies of assessment and therapeutic
intervention, communication, critical thinking, teaching, management and leadership,
and knowledge integration from the arts and sciences, nursing and related health sciences.
Students also learn to collaborate, communicate, and negotiate with nurses, other
health care providers, religious congregations, and community agencies to promote,
maintain or restore health and evaluate nursing care outcomes.
