Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

The NWCNHS has secured additional funds to address the urgent need for highly qualified nurses. These funds are being used to support an additional admission cycle for the Generic BSN program. We are now admitting students in the fall and spring. 

A Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree is the foundation for every nursing professional and the catalyst to progress your career from caregiver to manager to unit leader and beyond.

FIU Nursing’s Generic BSN program at the Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing & Health Sciences is a full-time, upper level program comprised of didactic coursework and clinical practice enriched with simulation education activities in our S.T.A.R. Center and opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations.

Students are admitted into the Generic BSN program twice a year in the Spring and Fall semesters.

Licensing Eligibility

Graduates of the program are eligible to become licensed as a registered nurse (RN) upon passing the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN®) and can pursue graduate studies in nursing at the master’s and doctoral levels.
