The RN to BSN program is available online or can be completed face-to-face on select regional campuses. Some courses are also taught at the Health First Education Center in Melbourne. The program consists of 30 credit hours of coursework that can be completed in as quickly as three semesters or as slowly as one course per semester, depending on the number of classes taken per term.

Qualified applicants must meet the UCF general education and foreign language requirements. To meet general education requirements, the applicant may either hold an AA degree from a state of Florida college or university, a bachelor's degree, or complete all 12 classes listed in the UCF General Education Program (see UCF Undergraduate Handbook). The foreign language requirement may be met by completing an AA degree from a state of Florida college or university if initial enrollment was fall 2014 or later, a bachelor's degree, two years of foreign language in high school, two semesters in college, or test as fluent in a language other than English. Students missing three or fewer courses to complete both the general education and/or foreign language requirements may be admitted to the program. Completion of these remaining requirements will be included in their plan of study.
