Pre-licensure BSN Programs


 

Nurse Practitioner BSN to DNP and NP Graduate Certificate Programs


The post-bachelor’s DNP nurse practitioner and post-master’s graduate certificate nurse practitioner programs are accredited nationally by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education and meet the educational eligibility criteria for national certification, which is a requirement for obtaining the license to practice in the state of Florida as an Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP), Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AGPCNP) and Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP).

Graduates of these programs are eligible to sit for their respective national board certification examinations. More information about the specific exams can be found on the program pages under FAQs:

UCF is an approved institution of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA). Membership in NC-SARA requires the university to disclose information regarding state licensing and certification requirements for the selected program of study when licensing and/or certification are a requirement to practice in the profession after graduation.

We are unable to confirm the licensure requirements of other states, territories, or foreign entities. If you intend to pursue such credentialing in your state or elsewhere, we advise you to contact the applicable credentialing authority to familiarize yourself with its specific requirements for licensure and determine if our program meets its eligibility criteria.

Recognition Ceremony & Commencement

Proudly sponsored by Orlando Health, Florida Hospital and the Student Nurses’ Association Chapters at UCF, the Nursing Recognition Ceremony is held at the end of each spring and summer semester – separate from UCF’s Commencement.

Fall graduates are invited to come back and participate in the spring ceremony. Contact [email protected] in advance to be added to our email communication list for this ceremony.

Is this program for me?

You might be a candidate for the Traditional BSN program if you meet one of the following conditions and the application requirements:

  • You have completed your freshman and sophomore years at UCF and have declared your major “nurse pending,” or
  • You have earned an Associate of Arts (AA) degree from a Florida public institution, or
  • You are a transfer student and have completed the equivalent of UCF’s general education program, or
  • You have earned a bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing discipline from a regionally accredited institution (eligible for Traditional BSN program at Cocoa and Daytona Beach only. Otherwise, consider the Second Degree BSN program in Orlando).

Active duty military who are eligible for the Military Enlisted Commissioning Program might also be a candidate for the Traditional BSN program.

When do I apply?

You will apply to the upper-division Traditional BSN program just prior to your junior year in college.

What should I expect in the curriculum?

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) curriculum is very demanding with a strong emphasis on the sciences.

The BSN degree also includes service-learning courses with clinical rotations in culturally diverse, medically underserved communities, as well as clinical rotations in long-term care facilities, hospitals and other healthcare agencies. All nursing courses are offered during the day, while some clinical rotations may take place at night or on the weekends.

The BSN curriculum provides a strong foundation for entry-level nursing practice and advancement into leadership positions and graduate studies. A nurse with a BSN degree provides comprehensive care in a variety of acute, community and rehabilitative settings.
