    Good luck everyone! Just know that UF does give priority to already UF students! They accept those at UF applying for the nursing program and if there are any extra spots, which is rare, then they consider transfer students. Not saying it is impossible, but just make sure you have a back up plan

    Yeah I'm trying to figure out my back ups. My big issue atm is my lease for my apartment expiring before they give us admission decisions. My fiance says I should consider Santa fe if UF denies me. Do you know if they have a good program? A family member says it is but she's going for another program there.

    I haven't heard of Sante Fe before, so I am not sure. One way you could find out about the program and ensure that it's decent is check into their accreditation and pass rate on the NCLEX both overall and only having to take the test once! Also, what kind of clinical opportunities do they offer? Typically smaller schools aren't able to provide as diverse clinical experiences because contracts are given to large universities, like UF.

    Hey I moved to this thread! I'm not a UF student, I would be transferring from Miami Dade Honors College. UF nursing is my dream school too! I've applied to UF, but haven't applied to the nursing school yet. I'm planning to in the next week or two. I have at least four backups too because I'm not so sure I'll get in...

    I havent applied yet either. I'm waiting for my AA to post on my transcript before i do. I'm also applying to UCF as a back up and probably a couple of other schools too. It seems like a lot of people want to be nurses!

    It's one of those careers with a lot of options! I wish you the best in your transfer applications. It can be pretty stressful. Hopefully we'll both be accepted to UF! But backups can't hurt, of course

    Do you know which specialty you want to go into? And did you want to earn beyond a bachelors?

    Hey guys! I'm currently at UF (Go Gators!) and applying! But, like everyone else, I'm super nervous about getting in! I love Gainesville and I really hope I get the opportunity to be apart of their wonderful program. I've talked to a bunch of current nursing students and they tell everyone that the chances are slim, but of course it's so worth it! I'm also applying to UCF, FSU, USF and UNF.

    Hope we all get in together! And can't wait to hear from you guys!

    Hi Brittany!

    Here's hoping we all get in together! I've heard nothing but great things from the Nursing program at UF. I'm considering becoming a Nurse Practitioner and am very interested in their Family Health/Educator track.

    I would really like to do pediatrics, but I haven't had the opportunity to explore other areas so I'm not entirely sure. I'm considering going to grad school and will make that decision when the time comes. What about you?

    I was set on ER for the longest time, then OB, ICU and peds. But I've been recently looking more into school nursing but I've been changing my mind so much I think being exposed to clinicals in school will solidify where I want to be. I wanted to be an NP but I'm also considering moving up the clinical ladder and working towards becoming a nurse manager. Only time will tell what happens lol

    I definitely think clinicals will solidify where we feel most comfortable (well hopefully they will!) It sounds like you have a great game plan so far. Where are you transferring from?
