A personal note from Dr. Buckner. . . . .
I believe this one of the most exciting times ever to be a professional nurse. As the largest and most flexible group of health care professionals, nurses will be at the forefront of change in modern health care. Belmont nursing students learn to provide care that is patient centered, evidence based, and grounded in quality and safety. It is a great time to be a nurse and Belmont is a wonderful place to enter the profession.
The most important thing I can tell you about myself is how important my faith is to me. My relationship with God is the cornerstone of my life. My world view is filtered through what I know about God and His grace in my life. I love teaching at Belmont where my faith is nurtured as I teach and learn with my students and colleagues.
