Belmont University offers multiple entry points for students to attain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing..
Four Year BSN
The traditional program offers high school graduates the opportunity to earn a BSN in four years. Qualified applicants are accepted into the nursing program as freshmen and can begin their clinical coursework upon successful completion of prerequisite courses, typically after the third semester at Belmont.
The School of Nursing offers transfer students several options to complete their degree depending on the amount of coursework eligible for transfer to Belmont. In addition, the Partners in Nursing program offers special opportunities for students transferring from partner institutions.
Accelerated Second Degree
Students who have previously earned a bachelor's degree in a field other than nursing may qualify for admission to Belmont's accelerated second degree program which provides opportunity to complete the BSN in 16 months, including full summer study.
Registered nurses who have not yet attained a bachelor's degree can finish their BSN at Belmont in as little as three semesters (depending upon previous coursework) with our RN-to-BSN program.
