Traditional Track

Nursing Sim Student 2 SQIn the traditional track, students complete all nursing courses during fall and spring semesters,  Additional coursework required for the BSN is also typically completed during the "traditional" academic year, at least for courses taken at Belmont.  Students may choose to take additional courses or study abroad during the summer months and, in some instances, may be required to complete some general education and/or prerequisite courses in the summer to meet graduation requirements.

Entry to the traditional track most often occurs as a Belmont freshman, but transfer opportunities are available.  Belmont offers direct entry to the BSN (admitted to the nursing program at the same time as admitted to Belmont). The following minimum admission requirements must be met by both freshmen and transfer* applicants.

Minimum Admission Requirements to the BSN for Freshmen and Transfers
  • 22 ACT composite score or 1100 SAT Reading/Math composite score
  • 3.0 cumulative high school GPA on a 4.0 scale
  • 3.0 cumulative college GPA on a 4.0 scale (if applicable for transfers)

Applicants who do not meet these requirements may be admitted to the University, but are ineligible for entry into the nursing program.  On occasion, additional requirements may be considered for admission to the nursing program.

At the end of the program, students will graduate with the BSN degree and be eligible to take the NCLEX, the nursing licensure examination.

* Partners in Nursing program offers special opportunities for students transferring from partner institutions.
