We are looking for visionaries who understand the critical need of the nursing shortage and recognize the important role higher education plays in its solution.

Leave a legacy on nursing’s future and allow us “Charge On!” to fuel the frontline of 21st century healthcare in Central Florida and beyond.

UCF has been awarded funding from the State of Florida and founding donors to break ground in Lake Nona. Now, in this phase of fundraising, we are seeking alumni and friends to invest inside the building. Naming opportunities are available.

INVEST in a History of Impact

For more than four decades, UCF has been leading the charge in excellence in nursing education, practice and research.

UCF already educates the most newly licensed RNs in the State University of System of Florida, and will continue to build a Knight nurse workforce.

UNLEASH Potential

Located on the 50-acre UCF Academic Health Sciences Campus at Lake Nona, the new, permanent home for the UCF College of Nursing will help us unleash our potential and make a greater impact on nursing’s future by:

  • Increasing enrollment across nursing degree programs, with nearly double the current space, to address the critical nursing shortage
  • Fostering greater innovation with state-of-the-art facilities and simulation labs to enhance nursing education and practice
  • Impacting patient care with more opportunities for collaboration in education, training and research with an optimal location

Together, we will fuel the growth of more Knight nurses to care, to lead, to innovate and to educate — ultimately impacting the health of our global community.
