Jacksonville University nursing students

This fall, Jacksonville University becomes the first campus in Florida, and only the sixth in the nation, to offer a master’s degree in family nurse practitioning with a subspecialty in emergency nurse practitioning.

JU’s program is designed to make its nursing graduates more marketable to hospitals.
