Dean’s Message

Welcome to the University of Florida College of Nursing. This is the home of “Gator Nurses.” Just about every college of nursing Web page in the country will tell you their programs are excellent. However, I believe the accomplishments of our College faculty members, students and alumni speak for themselves. As you review the information on our Web page, I think you will agree. If you are interested in becoming a part of a college that combines excellent and innovative education programs with outstanding scholarship and research, please consider applying to become a student or faculty member with us.

We also offer opportunities in clinical practice, including interdisciplinary and nurse-managed primary care sites. Our College of Nursing faculty is committed to maintaining and role-modeling excellence in clinical practice, particularly with special need and underserved populations. We are committed to recruiting ethnically diverse students, and students from disadvantaged backgrounds, and to supporting them in successful completion of their studies. We provide financial assistance, mentoring, and focused advising services for any students who request this assistance.

The spirit of Gator Nursing is a wonderful and exciting phenomenon. We invite you to learn more about the people and programs that are the reason for that spirit!

Go Gators!

Kathleen Ann Long, PhD, RN, FAAN
Dean, University of Florida College of Nursing and
