Caring is Critical



Put your head, heart and hands to the best use.

Our founder believed the best education nurtures and makes use of the head, heart and hands. There may be no more perfect example of this ideal than the Berry nursing program. Here, you will be taught by expert faculty, exposed to high fidelity simulated hospital situations and get hands-on clinical experience while developing your compassion and character in a caring and supportive community.

If your parents need convincing, casually mention that Berry nursing majors enjoy a 100% employment within three months of graduation.

Hands On

You will: Learn first-hand through clinical rotations at hospitals just minutes from campus. Do an internship in a critical care or high intensity unit. Develop care plans while caring for patients in a primarily Hispanic population.

Recent grad lands a career as an ER nurse

Natalie came to Berry planning to major in math. A desire to help people (and guidance and from an influential faculty mentor) inspired a shift to nursing. Countless hours in the lab, real-world work experience as a nurse technician during her junior year and international study in Costa Rica gave Natalie the experience, knowledge and confidence she needed to launch her career as an ER nurse at Hamilton Medical Center in Dalton, Georgia.
