The School of Nursing at the Brooks College of Health offers four (4) tracks for the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), a post-MSN certificate for Family Nurse Practitioner, and a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). The nursing program is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and approved by the Florida Board of Nursing.
Note that beginning in the fall 2014 term, pending approval, the MSN-PCNP and MSN-CNS tracks will transition to a DNP curriculum. With that, those who are admitted to the full-time RN-MSN Bridge in summer 2013 or to the part-time MSN-PCNP and MSN-CNS tracks in fall 2013 will face an adjusted curriculum that is not currently available online to view. The MSN-PCNP and MSN-CNS part-time candidates admitted in fall 2013 will have an option to opt out of the DNP. The RN-MSN Bridge will not be available for admission after the 2013 cycle. Additionally, the MSN-CRNA track will admit its final cohort in fall 2014. The inaugural DNP-CRNA, pending approval, will begin its first cohort in January 2015.
