40 years of excellence: 1979-2019

UCF Nursing: Celebrating 40 years of excellence, 1979-2009. A small cohort of faculty and undergraduate students made history in fall 1979 to begin nursing at UCF.

Our 40-year history of excellence is the result of the valuable contributions of those early trailblazers and the thousands of students and alumni, and countless leaders who have followed in their footsteps.

Join us in a celebration four decades in the making.
