Gala Program


40+ Years of Excellence

IN FALL 1979, a small group of BSN undergraduate students and faculty members made history to begin the nursing program at UCF. These trailblazers, and those that followed in their footsteps, have all made valuable contributions to what is today one of the nation’s best nursing programs.

Our history of excellence and bright future ahead are the result of the thousands of students and alumni, and countless faculty and leaders who have chosen to be a part of our story.
