Nursing ranks as the nation’s largest health career field. Registered Nurses (RNs) practice in a variety of settings while providing compassionate care to patients who are ill, injured, convalescent or disabled. Nurses are dedicated to the health and well-being of patients of all ages, health and abilities, and often serve as advocates in the care of individuals and communities.
Licensed nurses are qualified to work in any state and, due to their high demand, often choose their positions, hours and employers. Salaries and employment opportunities continue to expand as the health care industry grows, particularly in Central Florida. Additionally, positions outside of the traditional hospital environment offer nurses versatility and flexibility.

Employment in this field is expected to grow by 26 percent (faster than average) through 2020 due to the demands caused by technological advancements, an increased emphasis on preventative care and the large aging population (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics).
Qualified students may complete their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) while pursuing their A.S. in Nursing through the UCF/Seminole State Concurrent Program. Graduates of the program who do not participate in the concurrent program may articulate courses into a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program.
