List of All Accredited RN Nursing Programs in Florida

Here is a list of all accredited RN nursing schools in Florida. The first thing you will want to make sure is that your nursing school is recognized by the state board of nursing so that you will be able to sit for the NCLEX-RN after graduation.

Florida Nursing School NCLEX-RN Pass Rates

One of the most important things to look at when picking schools is their NCLEX-RN pass rate which is the exam that RN students need to pass in order to become a nurse. Florida RN nursing school pass rates are published by the Florida Department of Health’s Division of Medical Quality Assurance. Make sure your school is in the ballpark of the national NCLEX-RN pass average of 89%.

RN Nursing School Accreditation

Another thing you will want to look at is the nursing accrediting body for the school, if there is any. For RN programs, the best recognized nursing accrediting bodies are either NLN-AC or CCNE. There is a column that lists the accrediting body for Florida RN and LVN schools. Accreditation may be very important when looking for a job or if you want to upgrade from either an associate’s degree to a BSN or if you upgrade from BSN to a master’s degree. If your nursing school’s accreditation status is not good enough, you may not be able to transfer credits that will help you get a more advanced degree. With more hospitals and other employers seeking RN with bachelor’s degree or a master’s degree, it is advisable to seek schools that have better accreditation.

With all of that in mind, here is the complete list of all accredited RN nursing programs in Florida.
