Vanderbilt University School of Nursing was one of the first schools to place nurse practitioners and advanced practice nurses in collaborative practices with physicians and within agencies. Vanderbilt also offers multiple entry options into the School of Nursing, including the “bridge” program that has served as a model for schools around the country. Vanderbilt is a leader in technological innovation with our state-of-the-art nursing informatics lab, application of evolving technologies such as patient simulators in the classroom and PDAs at patients’ bedsides. Vanderbilt School of Nursing offers an extensive nurse faculty practice network of owned and affiliated clinics within the community and has collaborative nursing programs with entities around the world.

What’s more, Vanderbilt University Medical Center is ranked among the foremost in the country. And, located a little more than a mile from downtown, Vanderbilt’s campus is known for natural beauty that’s nestled in the midst of a bustling, cosmopolitan city.
