Traditional BSN Program

Traditional BSN Program

  • The traditional BSN program is a 4-year course of study. Students are admitted to the College of Nursing program as freshmen or after they have completed the nursing prerequisites and either the Liberal Studies requirements and at FSU (60 semester hours) or earned an Associates of Arts degree from a Florida public institution. Students with degrees or course work from Florida private or out-of-state institutions will receive a course by course evaluation to determine if they have satisfied these requirements.
  • The College of Nursing is located in Duxbury Hall, a modern four-story facility with technology enhanced classrooms and lecture halls. Our patient simulators, clinical labs, research tools, and study areas provide students with an exceptional learning environment. Clinical experiences are planned in the College's simulation center and throughout a variety of regional health care agencies.
  • Graduates of the BSN program are well-prepared to complete the national licensure exam for registered nurses. Current class pass rates are 95% for first time test takers and an overall 100% pass rate for each class.
  • The Florida State University College of Nursing BSN programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
  • Effective Fall of 2011, the College of Nursing transitioned to freshman admissions.   Please see the PDF below under Additional Information to read more about the freshman admissions process.
  • A limited number of junior level transfer students will be admitted on a space available basis. Junior level transfer applications will be accepted from December 1st through February 1st.
