Hotels near Baptist Memorial College of Health Sciences in Memphis, TN

Baptist College of Health Sciences (aka Baptist Memorial College of Health Sciences) is a private, not-for-profit, healthcare institution located in Memphis, Tennessee. BCHS operates in partnership with Baptist Memorial Health Care, a network of physicians, hospitals and other health care centers practicing throughout the Mid-South. Emphasizing service as an expression of Christian values, BCHS’s stated mission is to “provide quality education in a Christian atmosphere to prepare health care professionals for diverse practice environments.”

The college traces its history back to 1912 with the founding of Baptist Memorial Hospital and the concurrent opening of its School of Nursing. The hospital established a Radiological Sciences program in 1956 and, realizing the need for more advanced specialization, programs were added in Nuclear Medicine (1961), Radiation Therapy (1975) and Diagnostic Medical Sonography (1986). The Baptist College of Health Sciences was chartered in 1994, bringing these varied educational programs under one roof. The college is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, while the nursing program is approved by the Tennessee Board of Nursing and accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Association.

Today, BCHS is organized into three divisions: General and Health Studies - Bachelor of Health Science; Allied Health - Bachelor of Health Science; and Nursing - Bachelor of Science in Nursing. All degrees are offered in four-year programs with general studies courses primarily taken in the first two years of the curriculum. The college has a total student enrollment of over 950.

While a large number of BCHS students commute to the college, on-site housing is available in the main campus building. All students can take advantage of the campus’s many amenities, including a fitness center, basketball and racquetball courts, swimming pool, library, computer labs and study rooms. BCHS students participate in a number of school-sponsored activities and organizations, including student government, and bible study and prayer groups.
