Bachelor's Programs

Suncoast Nursing Accelerated Pathway


The Suncoast Nursing Accelerated Pathway provides students pursuing a BS in Biology, from either USF St. Petersburg or USF Sarasota-Manatee, a seamless transition into USF College of Nursing's accelerated Bachelor of Science (BSN) program.

This joint effort by the USF System institutions will enable students to have the unique combination of a science-focused background in the STEM discipline of biology and the academic and clinical rigor of the baccalaureate nursing degree.

Students will have opportunities for local clinical rotations in Pinellas, Sarasota or Manatee counties and the opportunity to engage in nursing research and global nursing experiences. The accelerated program prepares graduates to fill the employment demand for nurses and a seamless transition into USF's nursing masters, PhD and DNP programs.
