Welcome to the School of Nursing

Nursing is a rigorous field and requires rigorous training, but it’s one of the most rewarding professions you can choose. MTSU’s School of Nursing trains nurses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. We’ve been educating nurses since 1966, and we excel at it.

  • Our graduates have a near 95% pass rate on the RN licensure exam.
  • About 90% of our master’s graduates pass the nurse practitioner certification exam on the first try.
  • Our nurses are in high demand. Hospitals in Middle Tennessee—Vanderbilt, Ascension St. Thomas, and HCA—hire 80% of our graduates.
