The BSN degree is the critical first step for a career in professional nursing. The UF BSN is offered through three different programs to meet the needs of aspiring nurses.
Our DNP program is ranked #1 in the state and #28 nationally. This practice-focused doctorate is designed to prepare expert nurses in specialized advanced practice roles.
PhD students are actively involved with nursing and interdisciplinary research taking place in one of the most comprehensive academic health care centers in the Southeast.
Here at the College of Nursing, the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and community are top priority.
