USF Makes Room for People to Become Nurse Practitioners
As more and more facets of the Affordable Care Act take hold, the demand for nurse practitioners will surge. The University of South Florida is opening up places for would-be students.
University of South Florida's College of Nursing has increased its program capacity for family nurse practitioners to 180 each academic year. The college is experiencing growth across all nurse practitioner programs, with the greatest demand in primary care nurse practitioners, said Rita F. D'Aoust, associate dean of academic affairs and interprofessional initiatives at the College of Nursing.
