New partnership allows historically Black university students a pathway to earn UF nursing degree

Students from a historically Black university in Florida will soon have a dedicated pathway to earn a bachelor of science in nursing, or B.S.N., degree from the state’s top-ranked nursing program.

On Oct. 12, Edward Waters University, or EWU, and the University of Florida College of Nursing will enter into an agreement that allows up to five students from the state’s first historically Black college or university, or HBCU, to join the UF College of Nursing’s Accelerated BSN program at the UF Health Jacksonville campus.
