Welcome to Gardner-Webb University’s Hunt School of Nursing.

We have been educating nurses for the global community since 1965. What began as an Associate Degree program has grown into a program offering a range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The Hunt School of Nursing provides high quality, student-centered nursing programs from ASN to DNP based on current national competencies and practice. With hundreds of students now enrolled, the Hunt School of Nursing is one of the most prominent members within the Gardner-Webb family. The innovative nursing programs we offer engage nursing students in challenging discussions in both face to face and online settings. Our programs provide learning in small classroom settings supported by invaluable hands-on experiences in state-of-the-art simulation labs and in your community to enhance learning outcomes. The Hunt School of Nursing offers numerous opportunities to begin your nursing career as well as advance your current level of nursing practice.

The Hunt School of Nursing has a proud legacy of providing a faith-based nursing education within a close-knit, supportive learning environment. The faculty and I are committed to our HSON philosophy, to prepare students to care about and for individuals through the lifespan, to enhance the status of the global community, and to make significant contributions for God and humanity. As a community of caring individuals, we are dedicated to the success of students and to advancing the professionalism and the profession of nursing.
