Belmont University | Belief in Something Greater


Dr. Martha Buckner

Welcome to the Belmont University School of Nursing website, a great place to learn about the educational preparation to begin a career in nursing. As the largest and most flexible group of health professionals, nurses are uniquely qualified to help create and lead the change needed in our increasingly complex healthcare system. This is an exciting time to become a nurse and Belmont is the perfect place to do that.

Founded in 1972, Belmont University School of Nursing celebrates 45 years of preparing students for professional nursing practice. We offer baccalaureate, masters and doctoral degrees in nursing and our students consistently rank above the national average on licensure and certification exams. Employers tell us that they love to hire our graduates. Our alumni often go on to leadership roles and further graduate study and they serve as some of our best recruiters.

Our programs prepare graduates for the health care systems of the future, emphasizing care that is patient centered, evidence based, and grounded in quality and safety. Belmont students enjoy learning from expert faculty who serve as role models in the profession. Students learn in state of the art facilities and get clinical practice opportunities in all major Nashville hospitals and medical centers and scores of local clinics. I hope you will explore our website and come for a visit.

I look forward to meeting you.
