A background check is required to begin nursing classes. The Florida State Board of Nursing and the nursing boards of other states reserve the right to deny licensure in their states to an applicant who has an unresolved felony on record in any state. This background check may impact eligibility for licensure and should be determined in advance of beginning an educational program. For further information, see the Generic Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree Student Handbook Supplement.
With the approval of the University, the Department of Nursing reserves the right to revise, add, or withdraw courses and policies as necessary to ensure a quality nursing program.
