Today, more than ever, our communities need Knight nurses to care, to lead and to educate future generations to address our nation’s nursing shortage and to solve healthcare’s greatest challenges.

That is why UCF is building the College of Nursing for the future.

The Dr. Phillips Nursing Pavilion will unleash the potential of our Knight nurses and faculty experts to positively impact the health of our communities.

Building for the Future

The Dr. Phillips Nursing Pavilion is UCF College of Nursing’s new, 90,000-square-foot home at the 50-acre, state-of-the-art UCF Academic Health Sciences Campus at Lake Nona.

Anticipated to open in Fall 2025, the new building will make a positive impact on the future of nursing with:

  • 2X the space to increase enrollment across nursing degree programs to address the critical nursing shortage
  • 3X the state-of-the-art labs and simulation space to foster innovation and enhance nursing education
  • Increased collaboration in education and research to impact patient care with an optimal location.
