Our 16-month accelerated BSN program in Tampa Bay offers provisional admittance through our new early admissions prerequisite program (PREP) and provides you with the opportunity to become a nursing student now. Our admissions advisors review your entire education, not just your GPA, and see your potential and the type of nursing student you want to be.
Our CCNE accredited nursing program in Florida combines flexible online coursework with hands-on simulation labs under academic instruction and on-the-job training through clinical rotations completed at BayCare.
At Utica College, the measure of success is not just becoming a nurse. We want to see you succeed by acing your ABSN prerequisites, earning your Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and making a difference in the lives of others as a Registered Nurse. Our nursing program prepares students for the NCLEX.
In 2015, 94 percent of our accelerated BSN students passed the NCLEX-RN, compared to the national average of 86 percent. We provide the resources for you to succeed.
The ABSN curriculum is focused on nursing education that prepares you for entering the job market.
Utica College’s Florida accelerated nursing program students complete in-hospital clinical rotations at BayCare health systems throughout the Tampa Bay area. The BayCare health care network includes 14 hospitals and hundreds of other locations through the Tampa Bay and central Florida regions. This extensive network has allowed Utica College to create more capacity within the ABSN program to help more students become nurses now.
