Graduate University Policies
The School of Nursing offers a wide variety of programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The program has a community-based, population-focused curriculum corresponding to changes in healthcare delivery trends. The curriculum helps students understand community environments as well as nurturing and building relationships with community agencies. In 2005, the School of Nursing was selected as the first flagship program at UNF. Our nursing programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), Florida Board of Nursing, and the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists, Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (CoA-NA.) The School of Nursing is committed to providing opportunities for students to pursue their professional degrees in nursing. The program is designed to encompass both liberal arts and professional studies. The primary goal of the program is to prepare nurses to practice effectively in a variety of settings and administer nursing care, which promotes, maintains, and restores health to individuals, families and communities. Leadership and a commitment to the profession through research are included in the competencies of the programs. Graduates are prepared to function not only as professional practitioners, but also as educated citizens capable of effecting and dealing with change in society. Interested candidates should review the essential functions that are necessary of all enrolled nursing students found here.
