A Bachelor of Science in Nursing is one of the requirements for admission to our MSN program. Students who are interested in nursing as a new career may wish to consider an accelerated “second bachelor’s degree” BSN program. Alternatively, they could complete an Associate of Science degree in Nursing (ASN) and then go on to enroll in an RN-BSN program. This would give them the foundation needed to prepare for an MSN program.
No, we do not require the GRE for consideration for admission to our nursing programs.
Our nurse practitioner programs will prepare nurses for careers in primary care.
Student have the opportunity to choose their own preceptors and are given access to our database of clinical sites at the start of their program. If assistance is needed, we have a fulltime clinical coordinator in the School of Nursing who can work with students to help identify preceptors to meet their clinical hour requirement. Since we have relationships with clinical sites across the state of Florida, it is possible for nursing students to complete their clinical hours close to their home.
Florida Southern allows up to two (2) graduate-level courses to transfer. If you have taken more than two courses elsewhere, our MSN program director will determine which courses would be best to transfer to Florida Southern and which would be most beneficial to repeat at FSC.
