The placement of the College of Nursing in the Health Science Center offers a unique opportunity to learn and work with students from other health professions.

The College of Nursing maintains and participates in nursing and interdisciplinary clinics for women, children, adults and the elderly with special emphasis on under-served and rural populations.
The baccalaureate nursing degree prepares graduates to enter professional positions in primary, secondary and tertiary care settings with clients of all ages from diverse populations, or for advancement to a graduate degree program in nursing.
The college's baccalaureate and master's degree programs are approved by the Florida State Board of Nursing, as relevant, and accredited by the National League for Nursing and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (preliminary approval).
