College of Nursing
The College of Nursing UCF Alumni Chapter hosts various networking and celebration events throughout the year, but the chapter celebrates extra big during its two annual signature events.
Each spring, join us for an all-class reunion celebrating our Nursing Knights! The college and the alumni association host this annual event at the UCF FAIRWINDS Alumni Center. Alumni are invited to return, reconnect and remember how their alma mater helped lead them down their career paths. The next reunion takes place on April 18, 2015.
CON Nurses Week
Also each spring, we celebrate National Nurses Week, visiting local area hospitals and joining in many other Nurses Week celebrations!
Continuing Education Dinners
Each spring, the college hosts three continuing education dinners. Attendees earn one continuing nursing education unit (CNE) hour for their participation. Following the lecture, guests will hear an update on the college and learn how to stay connected to their alma mater.
Each year, the UCF Alumni Association recognizes alumni for their professional achievements and community service through a variety of awards. These are all of the recipients from the College of Nursing.
