The B.S.N. prepares students to become clinical generalists who are leaders, managers, and life-long learners who integrate research findings into their nursing practice. The nursing graduate of the UWF program will be capable of using the nursing process with clients of all ages, with diverse backgrounds in a variety of health care settings. The program refines clinical skills and stimulates student awareness of research applications, facilitates the practice of active inquiry, fosters the ability to think and respond critically, and promotes the desire for advanced study. This program provides a service to the health care community by increasing the number of nurses who practice professional nursing. The program also serves the population's health needs by providing quality nursing care.
This is a limited access program and acceptance to the University does not constitute admission to the upper division nursing program. A separate application must be made to the department.
In addition to the University’s general admission requirements as described in the Undergraduate Admissions section of the catalog, students seeking the B.S.N. must meet the following additional requirements at the time of application:
Upon admission the B.S.N. student will receive information concerning current UWF Nursing requirements for enrollment. These include, but may not be limited to, student health physical examination; hospital required immunizations; Level 2 criminal background check; VECHS fingerprinting; AHA BCLS certification; and drug screen.
Students earning a B.S.N. must complete the General Education, Foreign Language, and Nursing Common Pre-requisites prior to entry into the Nursing Program. Please note: nursing common pre-requisites must be completed prior to nursing application deadline date of March 1st
In addition to the General Education requirements listed on this page, students must satisfy all additional University requirements, including the Gordon Rule, multicultural, and foreign language requirements. With appropriate planning and coordination with an academic advisor, students may satisfy some of the general University requirements through the General Education curriculum.
