The School of Nursing

Florida A&M University is proud of its glorious past and long tradition of excellence in nursing education. Our faculty and staff have a long history of valuing educational access, fostering close student-faculty relationships, and achieving the highest standards of professional excellence. Our location in the state's capital provides us multiple opportunities to involve faculty and students in governmental issues that affect nursing health policy issues.

Close student-faculty relationships prepare graduates with clinical reasoning skills, technological proficiency, knowledge of social justice principles, and the ability to practice professionally in a variety of medical and health care delivery systems. The faculty is grounded in their understanding of the realities of delivering services, with a focus on contemporary community-based health promotion and disease prevention nursing. Health care challenges across the lifespan of both rural and urban populations are addressed.

The Florida A&M University School of Nursing was founded in 1904 and became the first baccalaureate nursing program in Florida.  The undergraduate degree program is approved by the Florida State Board of Nursing. Both the baccalaureate and master’s programs are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing. The ACEN's address and telephone number are 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, Georgia 30326, (404) 975-5000.
