For more than 40 years, Belmont University School of Nursing has been perfecting an educational model that challenges and supports graduates to be exceptional healthcare providers.   Our students are educated in a caring Christian community with an emphasis on a compassionate approach to nursing. Belmont nurses are known for the highest quality of care, an approach modeled by professors each day inside and outside of the classroom.  Student learning is enhanced through state-of-the-art simulation allowing treatment techniques to be practiced again and again prior to caring for live patients.  Clinical skills are refined through extensive practice experiences in world class hospitals and community clinics.  And paradigms are shifted by mission opportunities down the street and around the world.

Evidence of the high caliber education you will receive at Belmont is initially demonstrated by our graduates who, as a whole, significantly exceed national licensure and certification measures in the nursing profession.

If advancement to a higher degree is where you would like to take your nursing career, we encourage you to consider the specific program at Belmont University School of Nursing that will help you get there.

    Since 2004, all graduates of Belmont’s Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) program for Family Nurse Practitioners (FNP), totaling 150 students, have passed the nursing certification exam on their first attempt. The most recent class of 28 graduates passed the exam this spring.

    Dean of the College of Health Sciences Cathy Taylor said, “This is marvelous recognition for our outstanding students and a testimonial to the passionate dedication of an expert graduate nursing faculty team led by Dr. Leslie Higgins. We are so proud of this remarkable accomplishment.”

    The School of Nursing began offering its MSN degree 20 years ago and with the creation of the Doctorate of Nursing, the graduate programs have grown to a record enrollment of 87 students in the fall of 2014. Prepared to practice in a variety of settings, FNPs provide primary health care to families and individuals of all ages. Graduates from Belmont’s program have gone on to practice in pediatrics, genetics, family practice and public health, among others.

    Lucille Turmel, a 2012 Belmont graduate, found Belmont’s post-master’s certification program directly fit her needs and prepared her for a career as an FNP. Currently working in a private practice in Washington, Turmel said she enjoys working with all ages of patients and has recently developed a passion for teenagers and young adults.

    While at Belmont, Turmel said the best part of her education was the “personal attention and guidance from Dr. Higgins and the faculty and staff…I felt very well prepared and was employed two months after leaving Belmont.”

    The advanced practice nursing examination for FNPs is administered by the American Credential Center (ANCC) and validates nursing skills, knowledge and abilities. Since 1990, more than a quarter million nurses have been certified by ANCC and over 80,000 advanced practice nurses are currently certified by the ANCC. The certification is accepted by governing boards throughout the U.S. as well as insurers and the military.
