The Associate in Science in Nursing Programs (ASN) prepares students to practice nursing as registered nurses. Upon graduation, the students are prepared to sit for the NCLEX® Examination, according to Florida Rules 64B9 and Statutes Chapter 464, and upon successful completion of NCLEX® to be licensed as registered nurses.
Nursing students spend approximately 50% of their nursing educational experience in clinical agencies and clinical simulations/labs and 50% in classroom settings. Various health care agencies are utilized including North Florida Regional Medical Center, North Florida/South Georgia Veterans Health System, UFHealth, and long-term care/nursing homes/rehabilitation centers. Students should note that clinical educational training could be Monday through Sunday, at varying hours, day or evening.
These programs are in compliance with the curriculum framework as administered by the State of Florida Department of Education. The ASN Program is nationally accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and approved by the Florida Board of Nursing.
