MSN Nursing Degree


Listed below are the institutions in Florida that currently offer MSN programs. Generally MSN programs in Florida are graduate nursing programs that prepare RNs to practice as Advanced Practice Nurses (APNs) that specialize in a certain field of nursing by getting them ready to take the American Nurses Credentialing Center exams for that specific field. Additionally, graduates should be equipped to apply for Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) certification through the Florida Board of Nursing. Program lengths vary somewhat, but expect them to last at least two years. Under the link to each programs website I have listed the concentrations or majors that prepare you to become APNs in that field that the program offers.
