Based in Orlando, UCF operates as a public university with about 72,000 students. The nursing MSN program at UCF offers several emphasis tracks: leadership and management, nurse educator, and the nursing and health care simulation. The MSN degree program requires independent scholarly work on an evidence-based nursing project and an evidence-based scholarly clinical paper. UCF's nursing program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
