Traditional BSN Program
Incoming Student Resources


All College of Nursing students must comply with health policies as required by the University of Florida, the Academic Health Center, and the College of Nursing. Failure to comply 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 “Undergraduate BSN” and select “UC15bsnf: BSN: Background Check – Drug Test – Fingerprinting – Medical Document Manager” package.

All CastleBranch requirements must be completed by NO LATER than August 28, 2023.

If you have questions regarding CastleBranch, please get in touch with CastleBranch first. If necessary, you may contact the Student Services Office, via email, for assistance.
