What are the top nursing programs at HBCUs?

I’m passionate about pursuing a career in nursing and I’ve heard HBCUs can be particularly supportive environments for people like me. Could someone shed some light on which HBCUs have the strongest programs in nursing? I want to make sure I’m getting the best education for my future profession.

Hi there! I'd be happy to provide some information on this. Many HBCUs are known for their strong nursing programs that focus not only on academic excellence but also on providing culturally competent care. Some top HBCU nursing programs you might want to consider include Howard University, Hampton University, and Winston-Salem State University. Howard, for example, offers a BSN program with a comprehensive curriculum and opportunities for clinical experience. Moreover, Spelman College, though not offering a nursing major, has a dual degree program with Emory University, allowing students to earn a degree from Spelman and a BSN from Emory's prestigious nursing school. Make sure to look at each program’s NCLEX pass rates and clinical rotation opportunities when making your decision!
