Program Distinctives

For nearly 50 years, the School of Nursing has been challenging and supporting 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.
