Adventist University is a private, not-for-profit college that affiliates itself with the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. Adventist University began originally as Florida Hospital and specialized in training nurses so that healthcare would be available for everyone. In 1992, the hospital opened Florida Hospital College, which changed its name in August of 2012 to Adventist University of Health Sciences. Adventist University is a member of the Adventist Health System in Florida Hospital’s University and holds over 2,000 beds in Central Florida, making it the largest of more than 350 Adventist healthcare facilities around the world.
Adventist University prides itself on providing students a solid foundation of educational experiences with a strong commitment to quality and excellence. Their main goal is for students to experience nurture, excellence, spirituality, and stewardship while learning the skills to provide the best possible patient care. Adventist University strives for its students to be leaders who will practice healthcare as a ministry, not just a career. To provide convenience for those who may not be able to attend class sessions, ADU offers both online learning (distance learning) and campus learning to current ADU students. Both options provide flexibility to learn on your own schedule, offer structured classes, and offer a virtual community featuring weekly course chats that allow you to interact with professors and classmates.
