General Admissions Requirements

Our program is open to all individuals who possess an LPN license or a Practical Nursing Diploma, have earned an Associate Degree or higher, or are a licensed paramedic. Florida Academy of Nursing encourages applicants from all cultural, racial, religious and ethnic groups and does not deny admission or discriminate against students enrolled at the school on the basis of race, age, creed, color, sex, disability or national origin.

A personal, on-campus interview with an admissions representative is required before enrollment. The interview process is to evaluate the student’s ability to successfully complete the requirements of the program in which he/she is seeking admittance.   The school encourages parents and spouses to attend the interview. This gives applicants and their families the opportunity to see the campus, equipment and facilities and to ask specific questions relating to the school, the curriculum and the career training being considered. The personal interview also gives the school the opportunity to meet prospective students and evaluate their qualifications and aptitude.

All applicants must complete financial arrangements prior to starting class.

Florida Academy of Nursing recognizes that students choose their sessions in order to accommodate domestic obligations (family or work).  However, certain examinations, events, externships/clinical rotations and make-up days might be at times other than that of their preferred schedule and on weekends.
