For more than 45 years, the 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, a standard modeled by professors every day, both inside and outside 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, including 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.
For more than a decade, students from Belmont University School of Nursing have spent three weeks each summer immersed in Cambodian culture. The study abroad experience explores the impact of Cambodia's genocide on culture, healthcare and social determinants of health in a developing country. While in Phnom Penh, Cambodia students consider the impact of the Sihanouk Hospital Center of HOPE's delivery of free, high-quality care to the poor of Cambodia. Students also partner with non-governmental agencies, such as Freedom's Promise, to provide health screening, health teaching, and episodic health care. The study abroad experience includes opportunities in Phnom Penh, villages in various provinces, and Angkor Temples in Siem Reap. Students earn course credit and/or clinical hours. Students divide their clinical time between the medical and surgical wards, the operating room, the emergency room, the outpatient clinic, and home visits to AIDS patients.
The School of Nursing also participates in other short-term mission and service-learning opportunities with students from pharmacy, physical therapy and occupational therapy in countries such as Guatemala, Haiti and China among others.
