Education Partnering with Practice

Active partnerships with practice colleagues provide opportunities for the College to develop innovative solutions, which are needed to address the nation’s complex nursing shortage. The UF College of Nursing maintains active affiliations with more than 300 community and state health care agencies, hospitals and health care settings.

The colleges of the Health Science Center and their associated health care delivery networks provide access to an integrated system of community hospitals and clinics, statewide home health care, a veterans’ health system and Shands Hospital at UF. In addition, partnerships with such first rate health care facilities North Florida Regional Medical Center, the Malcom Randall Veterans Affairs Medical Center and Shands Jacksonville provide superior clinical experiences for the next generation of Gator Nurses, in addition to improving the health of our communities.
