BSN Overview

Offered at our main campus in Tallahassee, Florida, our nationally accredited BSN program provides quality preparation and on-the-job experience. The traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is a limited access/limited enrollment upper division major comprised of sequential course offerings and elective courses. The BSN program is a two term admit process which takes place in Fall and Spring of each year.  We admit 72 students each Fall and Spring semesters. Graduates of the BSN program are well-prepared for the national licensure exam to become a registered nurse (RN), and have the foundation necessary to pursue higher education. The BSN program is a 2-year course of study. Students are admitted through a competitive application process to the College of Nursing program after they have completed the nursing prerequisites as well as all Liberal Studies/General Education requirements and a minimum of sixty (60) semester hours of courses that fulfill General Education per the FSU catalog OR an Associate of Arts (A.A.) from a Florida public institution.

The College of Nursing recognizes that many colleges and universities are offering the option of S/U grading in place of traditional letter grades (A, B, C, etc) for Spring 2020 semester, in light of changes to course content delivery associated with COVID-19 pandemic. If you intend on applying to the BSN program, we highly encourage you to select the option of letter grades for work completed Spring 2020. Letter grades are encouraged for the following courses:
