Make a difference in the lives of patients.
If you’re seeking a fulfilling career in a growing, dynamic field, look no further than nursing. With a bachelor’s degree you’ll be equipped to care for patients and support a dedicated medical team.
Through UCF Online, you’ll study nursing online through prerequisites in human anatomy, nutrition, chemistry, microbiology and more. From there, you’ll advance to topics such as the essentials of nursing, pharmacology of nursing practice, healthcare policy, nursing leadership and public health. Between 2016 and 2026, the Bureau of Labor Statistics is projecting more than twice the average rate of job creation in this growing and impactful field. This means you’ll immediately be able to practice what you’ve learned as you step into your career.
UCF Online offers an RN to BSN program, as well as a Florida College System Concurrent ASN to BSN program that is designed for students who are not yet registered nurses.
RN to BSN Program
The post-licensure RN to BSN degree completion program is designed for registered nurses. The College of Nursing will validate previous coursework and will award up to 29 credits for prior learning.
Students can get a head start on a nursing graduate degree by substituting up to 9 credit hours of graduate coursework while enrolled in UCF’s RN to BSN program.
The RN to BSN program is available online or can be completed face-to-face on select regional campuses. Some courses are also taught at the Health First Education Center in Melbourne. The program consists of 30 credit hours of coursework that can be completed in as quickly as three semesters or as slowly as 10 semesters, depending on the number of classes taken per term.
Florida College System Concurrent ASN to BSN Program
The Florida College System Concurrent ASN to BSN degree completion program is designed for students who have completed at least one semester in a statewide articulated A.S. in Nursing from a Florida College System institution. Eligible applicants must complete all required prerequisites by the program application deadline with at least a 2.0 GPA or better in each course and have a 3.0 overall GPA.
This program allows simultaneous enrollment in both associate and baccalaureate nursing programs. Students will earn the B.S.N. degree months earlier than with a traditional RN to BSN program.
The Florida College System Concurrent ASN to BSN can be completed completely online with no in-person class time or meetings required. Courses for this online track are typically taken in as few as six semesters. Each Plan of Study is individualized in consultation with an advisor.
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing is an innovative program accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and approved by the Florida State Board of Nursing. Upon graduation, you’ll be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for registered nurses. We welcome you to begin your application today.
