The registered nurse (RN) plays a critical role in the healthcare system. In a hospital setting, RNs tend to patients’ bedside care, dispense medication, and coordinate teams of nursing staff. Outside of hospitals, RNs work in a range of healthcare settings such as schools, clinics, and social service agencies. The RN’s role has expanded recently as the Affordable Care Act places increased demands upon the country’s hospitals and healthcare providers.

To practice in Florida, an aspiring registered nurse must complete either a two-year associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) or a four-year bachelor of science in nursing (BSN). Florida’s colleges and universities offer numerous options in both tracks, with over 150 ADN programs across the state and more than 40 prelicensure BSN programs. At the conclusion of either course of study, students must pass the NCLEX-RN examination to gain licensure as a registered nurse.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Florida’s RNs earn a median annual salary of $60,420. Nurses with BSN degrees frequently land in the top pay quartile, earning $71,210 or more per year. Nurses have a wide range of employment options across the state, including Wuesthoff Health System, the Cleveland Clinic, and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

In a healthcare system growing to meet the nation’s needs, RNs fill a critical gap by enabling providers to serve more patients in a cost-effective manner. If you are interested in meeting this challenge, check out the following list of prelicensure RN programs throughout the state of Florida.
