Leading the Charge in Nursing Education, Practice and Research

The University of Central Florida has been leading the charge in educating the next generation of nurses for 40 years. Ranked among the best in the nation and accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, the UCF College of Nursing offers online and on-campus degree programs at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels.

UCF Nursing: Celebrating 40 years of excellence, 1979-2009.

Through nationally recognized faculty, innovative research, evidence-based practice and community service, the UCF College of Nursing prepares nurse leaders to meet the world’s ever-changing healthcare needs.

Celebrating 40 Years of Excellence

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.

Re-Save the Date! The 40th anniversary gala has been rescheduled to May 15, 2021. Learn more.
