Make an impact in the lives of patients by delivering high-quality care

Now more than ever, there’s a need for qualified nursing professionals to provide care to those who need it most. By earning your bachelor’s in nursing, you can become a leader in your field and make an impact within the health care system. The program emphasis includes clinical nursing practice, health promotion and maintenance, and preparation for assuming leadership roles. The baccalaureate curriculum also provides you with the foundation for graduate study in nursing if you choose to continue your education.

Program Tracks

The post-licensure RN to BSN degree completion program is designed for registered nurses. The program consists of 30 credit hours of coursework that can be completed as quickly as three semesters or as slowly as ten semesters, depending on the number of classes taken per term. Students also have the option to 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.

Request Information

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 before the program begins with 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 a traditional RN to BSN program.
