Adventist University (formerly Florida Hospital College) began to train nurses in 1908 so that healthcare could be made available to all. In 1992, Adventist University of Health Sciences opened to continue and expand that effort. Today the university specializes in allied health and nursing education based on this overarching belief: healthcare is more than a career, it’s a ministry.
The university, located near downtown Orlando, is built on a solid foundation of educational experience, deeply rooted traditions, and a strong commitment to quality and excellence. Our vision is that each student will experience nurture, excellence, spirituality, and stewardship while learning the skills to provide the best possible patient care.
Adventist University of Health Sciences is part of Florida Hospital, a member of the Adventist Health System. With over 2,000 beds in Central Florida, Adventist University is the largest of more than 350 Adventist healthcare facilities around the world.
