Students enrolled in the bachelor of science in nursing (B.S.N.) program in the Moffett & Sanders School of Nursing are prepared to use knowledge, critical thinking skills, and practice skills learned from both nursing and liberal arts to provide professional nursing care in a variety of clinical settings. Upon completion of the program, graduates are eligible to apply for licensure as a registered nurse. Our graduates consistently achieve pass rates above state and national averages on the NCLEX-RN and experience excellent employment rates.

In addition to the traditional B.S.N. program, individuals who already hold a baccalaureate degree in a field other than nursing may pursue a B.S.N. through the five-semester second degree program. Students may apply to the school of nursing immediately upon admission to Samford University.

For students who are military veterans, there is now a bachelor of science in nursing degree available in the same two pathways: traditional nursing or the five-semester second-degree program.

The non-degree, pre-nursing major is for students who are planning to enter the nursing program, but who have not yet received formal admittance.
