Why a BSN Degree?
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree is the critical first step for a career in professional nursing. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), the national voice for baccalaureate and graduate nursing programs, recognizes the BSN degree as the minimum educational requirement for professional nursing practice.
The UF College of Nursing Student Services Team promotes the success of all students in the College of Nursing across programs, and seeks to enhance the student experience for every soon-to-be Gator Nurse! The Student Services Team provides a number of support services to students throughout their program.
