Master of Science in Nursing



SherryIf you are ready to take the next step in your nursing career, Belmont University School of Nursing is ready to help you. The Master of Science in Nursing curriculum is designed to provide a plan of study in the advanced practice option of Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP). This program also provides a foundation for doctoral study.

Nursing education at the master's level builds upon baccalaureate nursing preparation. Program courses and content are organized to facilitate the progression of student learning from that of a baccalaureate generalist to that of a specialist. The curriculum has two dimensions: core and specialization.  Core courses are taken by all students and include theory, research, economics, statistics and issues. Specialty courses are based upon the area of specialization.

FNP graduates enjoy significant professional flexibility and marketability. Prepared to practice in a variety of settings, FNP's provide primary health care to families and individuals of all ages. Graduates are prepared to sit for national certification as Family Nurse Practitioners.
