All students majoring in nursing are encouraged to contact the college’s Office of Academic and Student Affairs for advising before submitting an application for admission.
Nursing majors are admitted to the college and must complete general education and preprofessional requirements as freshmen and sophomores. Standards for continuation are established for nursing majors and continuing students are monitored by the college. Universal tracking audits that identify progress toward the degree are posted on ISIS at the end of each fall and spring semester (www.isis.ufl.edu). Critical tracking criteria are outlined in the curriculum plan section that follows.
Students begin professional nursing studies in the fall semester of the junior year. All academic requirements must be completed by the end of the summer A semester before enrolling in professional nursing (NUR) courses. On-track and potential on-track students are sent the college’s BSN information form during the third semester at the university. This form must be completed and returned to the address indicated on the form by February 1 preceding enrollment in NUR courses.
Application materials of off-track students are reviewed individually. Admission evaluation factors include academic record, cumulative grade point average, performance in preprofessional courses, performance on the Allied Health Professions Admission Test (AHPAT), extent to which the applicant exceeds minimum requirements, relevant achievements or experiences and career goals.
For application information, all transfer students should refer to the Admissions section of the catalog, Admission as a Transfer Student. Within space and fiscal limitations, applicants from other institutions who have satisfied minimum requirements will be considered for admission at the junior level.
Florida community college applicants to the College of Nursing must complete an Associate of Arts degree and meet all other university and college-specific requirements. Upon receipt of transcripts and the completed BSN information form, application materials will be reviewed. Admission evaluation factors include academic record, cumulative grade point average, performance in preprofessional courses, extent to which applicant exceeds minimum requirements, relevant achievements or experiences and career goals.
Students attending four-year colleges in Florida or out-of-state institutions should complete 60 semester hours, taking courses similar to the preprofessional preparatory courses outlined in the first two years of the nursing curriculum plan. All other university and college-specific requirements must also be met.
