Honors Admissions

B.S. to PhD in Nursing Science Pathway

First-time-in-college USF students who have been admitted to the Judy Genshaft Honors College and are interested in careers as nurse scientists have a special opportunity. They have the option to participate in an early pathway to USF’s College of Nursing that allows them to complete a Bachelor of Science in nursing followed by a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in nursing science. The College of Nursing PhD Program provides the link between practice and research, preparing nurse scientists to affect the lives of millions of people by creating the science that impacts patients, families, and communities. Full-time students may be eligible for scholarships and/or graduate assistantship positions.
