Florida MSN Degree Prerequisites
Florida nurses who continue their education and gain a Masters in Nursing (MSN) Degree are licensed by The Florida Board of Nursing as either an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) or an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner(ARNP).
To enroll in a MSN degree program in Florida, you must first become licensed as a Registered Nurse (RN). The most common Nursing Masters Degree curriculum in Florida and across the US is the RN-MSN program. See our directory of Florida RN to MSN programs
Those holding Florida RN certification have most likely already earned their Bachelors in Science of Nursing (BSN) degree. This is typically a four year training program at a nationally accredited school of nursing.
