Through your hands-on, nursing clinical experiences you will learn the realities of working with patients, their families, and other medical professionals as a nurse.
Florida Southern graduates boast a 100% first-time National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) pass rate.
The baccalaureate degree program in nursing at Florida Southern College is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).
Unlike other schools, which make you wait until your junior year before starting your nursing program, you begin the nursing program in your first year.
Graduating from the BSN program prepares you to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for Registered Nurses.
Complete your clinical experience at some of the nation's busiest, most technologically advanced hospitals.
Starting with your Nursing Fundamentals class, you'll use high fidelity mannequins that can hear, speak, and react physiologically — allowing you to practice complex medical procedures in a controlled environment.
Nurses work hand in hand with other health care staff members to produce the best possible patient outcomes. Our labs, set up to simulate a clinical situation, allow you to practice determining the best course of action for the patient and then delegate tasks and communicate accordingly.
Not only do these activities let you demonstrate your skills in a contextual learning environment, but they also foster critical thinking and improved clinical judgment. Because of your extensive hands-on training, you’ll be highly sought after. 100% of our nursing majors are offered a job or are accepted into graduate school.
Applicants for the direct-admit BSN Program should apply for admission to Florida Southern College and select Nursing as their intended major; a separate application is not required but admission is competitive.
The BSN program selects students with the highest academic profiles who we feel will be most successful in our rigorous nursing curriculum. First-year nursing students average a 3.76 high school GPA, 26 ACT, and 1240 SAT.
