Jacksonville, Florida Nursing Schools and Programs

College Degree Finder

When most people think about visiting Florida, they think of going to Miami, Tampa or Orlando. Yes, each of these cities is quite magnificent, but they pale in comparison to Jacksonville when it comes to economy and career opportunities. With a population of over 800,000 people living within the city limits alone and 1.1 million in the entire Jacksonville Metropolitan Area, Jacksonville is the largest city in Florida, and one of the largest cities in the United States. While Jacksonville isn't known for having Florida's best beaches, if you're an aspiring nurse you may want to seriously consider moving to Jacksonville for the career opportunities it presents. (And Jacksonville actually does have some fairly nice beaches within driving distance).

Jacksonville is home to some of Florida's top nursing schools including Keiser college, University of North Florida, Chamberlain College of Nursing and Jacksonville University. All of these colleges, and many more, offer top notch nursing programs that will prepare you for entry-level and advanced practitioner careers in nursing. The minimum requirement for becoming a licensed practical nurse (LPN) or registered nurse (RN) in Florida is to earn an associate or bachelor's degree in nursing from an accredited nursing program. While either degree will allow you to get your nursing career going, earning a bachelor's degree instead of an associate degree will provide you many more career advancement opportunties.
