Registered Nurse (RN) to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

The Registered Nurse (RN) to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) track is designed for those students who have already completed the RN program at a community college or diploma program and have been, or are eligible to be, licensed in the state of Florida.

Program Description

The University of West Florida's RN-BSN nursing program (pdf) prepares students to become clinical generalists who are leaders, managers, and lifelong learners. The role of the nurse is one that requires critical thinking, communication, independent judgment and familiarity with social, political, cultural, ethical and economic issues that affect health care and the nursing professional. Students learn to integrate research findings into nursing practice. This 100% online program track is open to RNs who hold current licensure (via ASN or diploma) and an associate degree from a junior or community college, or completed the General Studies curriculum.

The RN to BSN program admits a cohort twice each semester. All applicants must submit an active unencumbered RN license at the time of application. Please check the full list of deadlines here.
