Welcome to the School of Nursing at the University of West Florida! We are located in Building 37 on the main campus.
Here you will find dedicated staff and faculty that will advise and assist you every step of the way in your program - from the application process, through your theory and clinical classes and in your final preparation for the NCLEX licensure exam.
What makes our prelicensure program unique? We only admit 50 students three times a year. That means you will be part of a small, select group working closely with faculty that follow you through that year with dedicated personal attention. Clinical groups are team taught with access to two or three faculty members for most classes.
The pass rate of our students taking the NCLEX is one of the highest in the state of Florida.
The baccalaureate degree in nursing/master's degree in nursing at UWF is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

Leadership Advisory Council
The Leadership Advisor Council was established in 2013. It will be comprised of a diverse group of leaders who will provide expertise, advice and resources to enhance the quality of nursing education within the Department. The purpose of the LAC is to ensure a close professional relationship between leaders in the community and in nursing education at UWF.
