Trevecca’s Nursing Program offers a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing (BSN). This traditional, four-year degree program yields the greatest opportunity for career advancement and study. The degree prepares you for leadership and management roles within nursing, and is also required for entry into graduate programs for specialized study.

One advantage of studying nursing at Trevecca is that students will be surrounded by faculty members who are committed to leading Christ-filled lives. In addition, all of the courses students take at Trevecca and at its partner school, Belmont University, include the Christian perspective.

The partnership in nursing between Trevecca and Belmont University was initiated for creating innovative solutions to meet the nursing shortage. Belmont has a long-standing tradition of preparing excellent nurses with extremely high board passing rates. Because all of the nursing courses are completed at Belmont University, you will also have opportunities to learn from a leader in nursing education.

The courses completed at Trevecca are taken within the first two years and consist of general education courses as well as nursing preparatory courses. This provides students with a strong foundation, both educationally and ethically, as they enter into their last two years at Belmont and begin their full nursing course load.

By completing 66 hours of coursework at Trevecca and 65 hours of their coursework at Belmont, students within this partnership have the advantage of receiving professional training in one of the top nursing programs in Tennessee, and are given access to cutting edge instructional labs and equipment. This joint partnership will give students the opportunity to grow and learn in Trevecca’s community while taking advantaged of two universities' nursing programs, in the most cost-effective way. This partnership also provides students with access to hospital partners for clinical experience opportunities from some of the best medical sites available to students anywhere.

The opportunity to study nursing between Trevecca and Belmont University will allow students to enter into the nursing field, where the average salary is $60,000, fully knowledgeable and experienced. Students who graduate from this program will be fully prepared, both ethically and academically, to work in the medical field.
