Nursing Home | History & Overview | Policies/Procedures | Degree Requirements | Programs | Organizations

The College of Nursing offers a course of study for registered nurses wishing to pursue a baccalaureate degree (as well as those desiring a masterís degree). RN/BSN students meet college graduation requirements through credit by examination, classroom attendance and clinical experiences. A class schedule that considers the needs of working RNs is available.

Course work focuses on development of professional nursing practice and includes content that will broaden and strengthen the registered nurse studentís repertoire of knowledge and skills. Content includes pathophysiology, pharmacology, health assessment, professional socialization, finance, health care delivery, research and family/community nursing. Clinical experiences are with individuals, families and groups in community settings.

The practicum is the culminating clinical experience and provides an opportunity for integration and synthesis of professional role behaviors and evidence-based practice. An elective permits students to pursue individual interests and to avail themselves of knowledge from other disciplines.

A current Florida registered nurse license is required in addition to the criteria for enrollment in the collegeís undergraduate nursing courses.
