About the Cohort Program

The Jacksonville University Brooks Rehabilitation College of Healthcare Sciences Keigwin School of Nursing has a long standing tradition of teaching RN-BSN and Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) courses off-campus on a rotating basis at hospitals around the city.

The Cohort program is designed to afford busy working registered nurses the ability to obtain their graduate degree at a reduced tuition rate, in a setting that is familiar and convenient. Located at a satellite institution, classes are held in the evenings one night a week. Students take one course every 8-weeks, which offers the opportunity to complete a Master's degree in roughly 22 months.
