Traditional BSN Program


CastleBranch

All College of Nursing students must be in compliance with health policies as required by the University of Florida, Health Sciences Center, and the College of Nursing. Failure to be in compliance with these requirements will jeopardize the start of clinical coursework.

The College of Nursing requires students to submit this information via CastleBranch which manages our student enrollment data for items such as immunizations and background checks. You will need to establish an account with them as soon as possible in order to begin submitting materials required for the program. Instructions for beginning this process are available here: UF BSN CastleBranch Package

All CastleBranch requirements must be completed by NO LATER than August 25th, 2017.

If you have questions regarding CastleBranch please contact CastleBranch first. If necessary you may contact Marina Bezesky via email at mbezesky@ufl.edu. Ms. Bezesky manages CastleBranch for the college and she can assist you should CastleBranch be unable to answer your questions.
