RN to BSN Program
Incoming Student Resources


All College of Nursing students must be in compliance with health policies as required by the University of Florida, the Academic Health 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. From the CastleBranch UF College of Nursing Portal you will select the RN to BSN Package.

All CastleBranch requirements must be completed by NO LATER than January 11, 2022.

If you have questions regarding CastleBranch, please contact CastleBranch first. If necessary, you may email CONREG for assistance.
