Nurture, Excellence, Spirituality, and Stewardship. These four words describe the vision of Adventist University of Health Sciences (ADU), a vision with a 96-year heritage. The Florida Hospital School of Nursing operated on this site from 1913 until 1958, when Southern Missionary College (now Southern Adventist University) began sending nursing students from Tennessee to Orlando for clinical experience. In 1983, Southern Missionary College opened an Orlando Center, offering an Associate degree in Nursing. Florida Hospital founded a School of Practical Nursing on this campus in 1964 and also offered programs in Radiography (1962) and Sonography (1988).
In 1992, Adventist University of Health Sciences began with the merger of four programs—the Associate of Science degree in Nursing, Practical Nursing, Radiography, and Sonography—to form a new school. The University became a baccalaureate-level institution in 1998 when it took over the Southern Adventist University Baccalaureate Nursing Program. Since then, the University has launched Associate of Science degrees in Occupational Therapy Assistant, Nuclear Medicine Technology, and Pre-Professional Studies. Five bachelor’s degrees have been added: Health Sciences, Biomedical Sciences, and distance learning degrees in Radiologic Sciences, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, and Nursing. In January of 2008, the University began its first masters-level program in Nurse Anesthesia. Building on 96 years of educational experience, ADU continues to grow as an institution with a strong commitment to quality and a passion for excellence.
