Accredited Nursing School Located in Florida

Your journey as a nurse begins at our Jacksonville campus. Here, we offer a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program that is accredited* by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

Our three-year BSN program has no waiting lists and we offer small class sizes in order to give students a more personalized experience. We are a single purpose college, focused on educating future nurses.

This means our BSN students can complete their degree programs faster than students attending four-year institutions. And at Jacksonville, you can sit for the NCLEX sooner, which means you can start your career faster.

Our Jacksonville campus is conveniently located just west of the I-95 freeway on Belfort Road, near the Butler Blvd Exit.

Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree Program

Our Jacksonville BSN program was created with entry-level students in mind. Throughout your nursing school experience, our attention will be on your academic success. To do this, we keep class sizes small and offer additional support via tutoring programs.

Our BSN program combines both your general education and nursing courses into a single curriculum that teaches you the skills necessary for a lifetime of personal and professional growth. As a result, you can start nursing-specific courses as early as the end of your first year of classes.

Overall, you need 129 total credit hours to earn your BSN. This is divided up between 69 credit hours in nursing-specific courses and 60 credit hours in liberal arts and sciences courses.

What Students Can Expect

As a student, you’ll be taught by currently practicing registered nurses (RNs), as well as professional educators who stay on top of the latest in healthcare principles, practices and technology.

You’ll refine your nursing skills in our SIMCARE CENTER™. This simulated healthcare space lets you apply what you’ve learned to high-tech patient mannequins. Faculty will be available to observe throughout your time in the center, so you’ll be able to receive feedback on your efforts.

Lastly, you’ll also take part in clinical coursework. This foray into the real-world of Florida healthcare will give you training with real patients. This immersive experience takes place under the supervision of on-site RNs who will act as your preceptor, answering questions and guiding you along the way.

Outside of the classroom, you’ll also have access to additional resources to help you complete your Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program, including:

  • Student Academic Success (SAS) Plan – Measurement and tracking of student activity for early identification of academic concerns and timely response.
  • Center for Academic Success (CAS) – Helping students succeed through tutoring, assessment, teaching and other resources.
  • Early Alert – Proactively identifying students who are experiencing academic performance issues in order to help increase student success.
