Belmont's School of Nursing offers a 34-month MSN program with in-person instruction on our campus in Nashville, TN. 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 include theory, research, economics, statistics, and issues. Specialty courses prepare students for primary care clinical practice as family nurse practitioners.

The MSN curriculum complies with accreditation standards set by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) which ensures the quality and integrity of baccalaureate and graduate programs in nursing.
