Answer your call to care for others.
Gardner-Webb nursing students are committed to serving others. Becoming a Registered Nurse (RN) allows you to care for people with skill, compassion and respect. Our BSN program emphasizes a holistic approach, focusing on clinical competence, therapeutic relationships, faith and social awareness.
Your professors will share their own career experiences with you. They’ll also support you with one-on-one guidance, helping you meet your degree requirements and plan your future career or graduate study goals.
On our campus, you’ll engage in real-world scenarios in simulation-based lab learning experiences. You’ll also take your academic knowledge out into the community, earning practice hours at local hospitals and clinical settings.
Your classes, labs, and hands-on learning experiences will help you:
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is a traditional pre-licensure four-year undergraduate program. Your BSN degree will require 129 hours. 63 hours will fulfill your general education requirements and nursing courses will complete the remaining 63 credit hours.
As part of the NC Board of Nursing requirements, you’ll also learn practical skills and experiences through 120 clinical hours focused on client care.

Since Gardner-Webb offers programs in Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), Physician Assistant Studies (PA), and Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), you can transition smoothly into your advanced degree once you’ve completed your BSN.
