Education

The University of Florida College of Nursing (CON) began offering coursework through the Jacksonville campus in 1979 for students seeking a Master’s Degree in Nursing (MSN). In 1985, the campus became home to the Nurse Midwifery clinical track, which enabled a strong collaborative relationship between the College of Nursing, the UF Department of OB-GYN and the obstetrical nursing department at UF Health Jacksonville (then University Medical Center). That relationship remains strong today. Advancing distance education technology over the ensuing years supported a closer relationship between the Jacksonville and Gainesville campuses, facilitating the growth of both nursing programs. In 2001, CON opened access to its Ph.D. in Nursing degree program via the Jacksonville campus, the first nursing doctoral degree program in the area. Five years later, it began offering one of Florida’s first clinical nursing doctoral degree programs, the Doctorate of Nursing Practice, through both campuses. Today, Jacksonville is home base for approximately 85 graduate nursing students pursuing M.S.N., D.N.P., and Ph.D. degrees. It contributes approximately one third of the college’s total graduate students each year, and its graduates hold leadership positions throughout the Jacksonville clinical and academic communities. The campus is supported by eight on-site nursing faculty members who serve on various UF Health Jacksonville and UF campus committees.
