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.

    For the past seven weeks 18 Belmont senior-level nursing students participated in a summer internship program called Vanderbilt Experience: Student Nurse Internship Program (VESNIP) at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) along with students from four other regional nursing programs. Three Belmont nursing students were awarded the highest honors at the culminating awards ceremony held Wednesday, June 25th, in the Waddington Conference Room at Monroe-Carroll Children’s Hospital. A total of seven awards were given; three went to Belmont students. VUMC credo behaviors identify those individuals that aspire to excellence and expert performance. Jennifer Bognar received the Credo Award for Psychiatric/Mental Health Track, Gabrielle Pappas received the Credo Award for the Perioperative Track, and Sarah Steele received the Credo Award for the Women’s Health Track. Dr. Leslie A. Folds, who coordinates this program for Belmont School of Nursing, states that, “It is clear that our students continue to incorporate the mission, vision, and values of Belmont University in their interactions with patients, families, and the entire healthcare team. Our students consistently pursue excellence.”

    This is the tenth year of the VESNIP program. The program began as a partnership between Belmont School of Nursing and Vanderbilt University Medical Center. It has now expanded to a total of 62 students and includes five Tennessee and Kentucky nursing schools. The VESNIP positions are very competitive and are considered elite opportunities for students from around the region. Claire Zetak, Belmont nursing student, in the Critical Care Track, stated that, “Overall the VESNIP experience allowed me to see myself as a nurse. Through multiple opportunities to practice nursing skills and employ critical thinking, my knowledge base as a nurse has begun to strengthen and grow outside of the school setting. I feel comfortable working in a hospital setting now, and I have a clearer view of my roles and responsibilities as a future nurse.” Betsy Sanders, Belmont nursing student, who participated in the Perioperative Track, also commented, “Nursing students fortunate enough to participate in VESNIP experience a level of nursing not attainable by simply fulfilling clinical requirements. I am leaving this seven week program with enhanced nursing skills, a better understanding of the all-encompassing responsibilities of being a nurse, and a true appreciation for the multidisciplinary teamwork necessary in providing patients with safe, efficacious, and patient-centered healthcare.”
