Dean Mary Lou SoleNursing, like UCF, provides you with a wealth of opportunities.

A degree in nursing opens doors to a rewarding career that’s virtually limitless. You can follow your passion – whether it’s critical care or pediatrics, hospital or board room, and so much more.

I believe there’s no greater place to begin, or continue, your journey than UCF.  Like you, our faculty are driven to make a difference in the lives of others. Each day, we strive toward the highest standards in everything we do to prepare future nurse leaders that will positively impact the health of a global community.

As one of the nation’s largest and “most innovative” universities, UCF offers unique opportunities – and esteemed experts – that you won’t find elsewhere. There, perhaps, is no greater example than the Academic Health Sciences Center where UCF is revolutionizing 21st century healthcare education. For our students and faculty, the center provides a unique opportunity for interprofessional education and interdisciplinary collaboration that enhances knowledge and ultimately, patient care.

This is just beginning. Learn more about the opportunities available at the UCF College of Nursing and unlock your full potential in nursing.
