Nursing: Prelicensure Nursing

The Osprey Map provides a term-by-term sample schedule for each undergraduate academic program at the University of North Florida. It is designed to guide students in the selection of courses each term. The "Mile Marker" courses are those courses that should be completed before or by the end of that term. Following the sample schedule, and completing the mile marker courses at the appropriate point of your undergraduate career, will facilitate graduation in four years. The term-by-term model assumes full-time enrollment. For students enrolled part-time, the sample schedule and mile markers should be followed based on the number of credits completed. The Osprey Map should be used in consultation with an academic advisor.

The Nursing curriculum provides a strong scientific base of study with a diversity of clinical experiences and unique opportunities to work with vulnerable and underserved populations.

Career Planning
Engaging in career planning activities is significant to student success. UNF offers customized career centers to deliver targeted programs, events, services and resources. First-Year and Exploratory students should visit the Career Services webpage and Sophomore or higher level students with a declared BCH major should visit the Brooks College of Health Career Services office.

Students should refer to their personalized Degree Evaluation provided by an academic advisor and to other university resources for additional university and college-specific policies and procedures. Visit the undergraduate university catalog for more information.

Summer terms may be utilized to facilitate graduation in four years.

  • Visit the university catalog for a list of General Education requirements. An Associate in Arts (AA) degree from a Florida public university, state college or community college satisfies UNF general education and Gordon Rule requirements. Math selection is contingent upon appropriate placement score, the student's major and credit received through accelerated mechanisms (Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Dual Enrollment, etc).
  • Visit the Regular Prelicensure Nursing webpage for a complete list of prerequisites and other important information. Applicants will be required to have at least 5 of the 8 prerequisites completed at the time of the application deadline, and of these courses at least 3 must be science prerequisites (i.e. General Biology, Microbiology, A&P I, A&P II, Chemistry in any combination). Applicants will still be responsible for successfully completing deficient prerequisites with a C or better before enrollment in the nursing curriculum.
  • Civic Literacy Requirement: Students must demonstrate competency in civic literacy through successful completion of a civic literacy course (AMH 2010, AMH 2020, or POS 2041) and by achieving a passing score on an assessment prior to admission into the Nursing program. Consult an academic advisor, the university catalog, and visit the Civic Literacy webpage for additional information.
  • Nursing is a Specialized Admissions program, admitting a finite number of applicants. Program admission requires a decision by a college administrator or faculty member. Students are not guaranteed admission into this program, and can not degree progress into Term 5 (61-75 hours) until admitted into this program. Find specific admission criteria for this program on your Degree Evaluation, college website, university catalog, or consult your academic advisor.
  • Students must earn additional Free Elective credit if needed to meet 60 semester hours required for junior level status and to satisfy the university minimum 120 total semester hours (minimum of 48 upper-level hours 3000/4000 level) for graduation.
