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.

    LaQuitta Wilkins, a 2012 Belmont alumna and past member of the Women’s Basketball Team, was recently featured as an “In the Spotlight” of Minority Nurse, a magazine, career resource for nurses and the largest dedicated diversity nursing jobs board, according to the organization’s website.

    In the spotlight, Wilkins said her time in nursing school was especially challenging as she was also a member of the basketball team. But she stuck to the task and found time to study between games. Wilkins is quoted as saying, “Even when people told me I couldn’t do nursing school and basketball, I did. You can do it even if you face adversity. If you have a positive mindset you can achieve anything.”

    Wilkins is a traveling pediatric RN and was recently named Miss Black Alabama 2016.

It gives a clear indication of the quality and rigor of our program, and I could not be more proud of our students and their success. I am especially grateful to Dr. Leslie Higgins, director of Belmont’s Graduate Studies in Nursing, whose leadership of the program for the past 18 years has helped us achieve significant growth and outstanding quality within our graduate nursing programs.”

    The School of Nursing began offering its MSN degree 20 years ago and with the creation of the Doctorate of Nursing, the College’s graduate programs have grown to a record enrollment of 88 students in the fall of 2015.
