This track is for those already holding a baccalaureate degree in another field of study who want to prepare for a career in nursing while earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). The Accelerated Prelicensure track is concentrated and can be completed in four (4) consecutive semesters of full-time study, or about 15 months. Upon graduation from the program, students will sit for the NCLEX-RN licensing exam. This track is not designed for those who will not possess a baccalaureate degree in another field before entering. The Accelerated Prelicensure BSN track admits for summer (May start) and fall (August start) annually. Each cohort has 36 seats. Spring admission is not available for this track.The curriculum provides a strong scientific base of study with a diversity of clinical experiences and unique opportunities to work with vulnerable and underserved populations. The curriculum is community-based in that it supports engagement with the community throughout the nursing major by nurturing and building relationships with community agencies consistently over time through an innovative home-basing of students in a designated community for the entire length of their nursing program. The nursing program is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and approved by the Florida Board of Nursing.
