University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) has an excellent nursing program with lectures based on evidenced based practice. They also have one of the few Bachelor of Science to Doctorate of Nursing programs in the United States. The American Collegiate of Nursing has implemented new practice standards that will be implemented in 2015.
