Palm Beach Atlantic University
Palm Beach Atlantic University School of Nursing announces the addition of an upper-level track BSN program at our Orlando Campus. The program complements the University’s current nursing degree offerings and responds to the demand for baccalaureate-prepared nurses to provide better patient outcomes and reduce the total cost of care.

The Orlando campus upper level track BSN program is a traditional 16-week daytime format. This program will allow students who have already taken their science requirements to enter into upper level nursing courses and complete the program in about two and half years. Our BSN program offers students a holistic approach to the nursing profession and where you’ll have abundant opportunities to apply what you learn in local hospitals, clinics and community outreach programs.

Applicant transcripts will be reviewed for transfer credits and an initial degree plan developed. Although an AA degree or prior bachelor’s degree is preferred, it is not a requirement. With our BSN/MSN dual enrollment option, students can complete up to two graduate level courses that will be applied toward completion of our MSN. With this greater efficiency, students can lower the overall cost of earning both degrees. Pursing a graduate degree in nursing broadens opportunities in clinical or administrative settings.

For more information on the Orlando BSN program visit our website or contact our Orlando Campus Admissions Counselor, Martha Christlieb, at
