Lincoln Memorial University is a great place to send your graduate to school because it is a caring, learn-friendly, and safe place. There is always someone there to help you with anything you need and all the professors I have had were great. I love how the Freshman get an incoming UACT teacher who helps you to maintain your college life. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

Even though it is stuck in what seems like the middle of nowhere, the campus offers everything you need to have a great university life. Not only is the campus absolutely beautiful, but there is access to anything you need. For example, free food nights, free gym membership, free tutoring, and a lot more. There seems to be always something planned, but it's never too crowded here. We are a small enough school to where you're friends with everyone!
I was a former member of the LMU nursing school. The program is very political and it shows in the comradery of the instructors. There is a strong distrust and unfriendly attitude toward each other. Most of the instructors in the BSN program are great and willing to help the student, however, there is one that will make it her goal to see failure in students she doesn't favor. Take my review with a grain of salt, however, I have always graduated with honors, both undergraduate and masters level. In fact, graduated another program with honors at the same school This instructor though, is high up in the chain of command and uses that power to her advantage. Know this going into the program and be careful. There are plenty of great nursing schools around.
