Concurrent Enrollment Nursing Program with Valencia College
A limited-access, upper-division program
The first of its kind in Florida, UCF’s Concurrent ASN to BSN program allows you to earn an esteemed UCF nursing degree more quickly than the 2+2 model.
Through this unique, concurrent enrollment program, you will take ASN-level courses at Valencia College while also taking BSN courses taught by UCF faculty. When you complete your ASN degree from Valencia, you will already have earned more than half of your BSN credits – and will complete the remainder of UCF’s BSN program in a convenient, flexible online format.
Students who are enrolled in UCF’s Concurrent ASN to BSN program will take the NCLEX-RN after successfully completing the ASN portion of their program and prior to enrolling in their final BSN courses at UCF.
Update 4/9/20: Valencia College will not accept “S” grades in nursing prerequisite courses as part of UCF’s spring 2020 COVID-19 S/U grade opt-in policy.

|Program Length:||7 semesters | Graduate with BSN 1-2 Semesters After Completing ASN|

You might be a candidate for the Valencia/UCF Concurrent ASN to BSN program if you are not an RN and you meet one of the following conditions and the application requirements:
- You have completed your freshman and sophomore years at UCF and have declared your major “nurse pending,” or
- You have earned an Associate of Arts (AA) degree from a Florida public institution, or
- You are a transfer student and have completed the equivalent of UCF’s general education program, or
- You have earned a bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing discipline from a regionally accredited institution.
Note: The last four BSN courses are taught online – this program will not meet requirements for F1 or J1 Visa students. If you have questions, please contact UCF Global at global.ucf.edu or call 407-823-2337.
* We recommend that you apply to UCF at least 3 months in advance of the nursing application deadline. You must be admitted to UCF before you can apply to the College of Nursing’s limited access, upper-division BSN program.

Qualified students will take ASN-level nursing courses at Valencia College, while taking UCF nursing courses at the same time on UCF’s Valencia West campus.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) curriculum is very demanding with a strong emphasis on the sciences.
The BSN program provides a strong foundation for entry-level nursing practice and advancement into leadership positions and graduate studies. A nurse with a BSN degree provides comprehensive care in a variety of acute, community and rehabilitative settings.
