Dean of the College of Nursing & Health Sciences

Welcome to All Prospective Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Students

Welcome to our website. Our Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The undergraduate nursing faculty and I are happy that you are interested in our nursing program and we welcome the opportunity to help you learn more about our programs.

We have five distinctive BSN tracks that will meet the needs of prospective students seeking a BSN: (a) the Generic BSN track, (b) the RN-to-BSN track, (c) the Combined BSN and MSN (Masters of Science in Nursing) for Foreign-Educated Physicians track, (d) the Accelerated Option (AO) track, and the Veteran Bachelor of Science in Nursing (VBSN) track. Our BSN program tracks are highly competitive. Your journey will be challenging, but undoubtedly rewarding. If you are committed to becoming a leader in the nursing profession, the Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing and Health Sciences is for you.

Our BSN graduates are prepared as general clinical practitioners and scholars and eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN®) for licensure as a Registered Nurse. Our BSN graduates are thoroughly prepared for graduate study in Nursing.

The faculty and I are looking forward to meeting you. We are here to assist you in your journey to become an FIU graduate. Best wishes!
