Begin your journey; answer your calling

It's long been said that people are drawn to nursing, not in search of a career, but in response to a calling. We educate nurses who have the wisdom, the skills and the courage to go out into the world and make people's lives better. At Ida Moffett School of Nursing, we offer a number of pathways for you to obtain your B.S.N. degree.

Opportunities are abundant for skilled nurses. From acute care to specialized settings, the need for nurses is at an all-time high. After graduating, you'll be prepared to confidently go into clinical practice or pursue your education at the graduate level. But most importantly, you'll leave Samford prepared to make the world a better place.

You may apply to the Ida Moffett School of Nursing immediately upon admission to Samford University. Upon graduation with the B.S.N. degree, you are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN licensing exam.  Every year, our graduates pass their certification exams at rates far surpassing the national averages.
