The University of West Florida School of Nursing topped the state and national averages for 2020 by wide margins, as 95.97% of its graduates passed the National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nurses on their first attempt. UWF surpassed the national average for first-time pass rate by over five percentage points and exceeded the state mark by nearly 10 points. 


UWF RN Program Ranked #14 in Florida

UWF School of Nursing's RN Prorgam received a ranking of 14 (out of 50) nursing programs in Florida, in the 2019 Best RN Progams in Florida! Way to go Argo Nurses!!

Selecting the best nursing school in Florida can be difficult. To make the process easier first look for a school that supports students towards licensure and beyond. A great way to measure this is through NCLEX-RN "pass rates." We have ranked the top 50 nursing schools in Florida by analyzing current and historical NCLEX-RN "pass rates", meaning the percentage of graduates who pass the exam, out of the 154 RN programs in the state. Programs reviewed include schools that offer an Associate in Nursing (ADN/ASN), BSN, or Direct-Entry MSN Degree.
