Adventist University of Health Sciences works closely with Florida Hospital in Downtown Orlando to give students the clinical experience and world-class facilities that only a major medical center can provide. Florida Hospital, a globally recognized medical center, is the largest of more than 350 healthcare facilities worldwide.

Our vision has 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) sent 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 and sonography.

In 1992, Adventist University of Health Sciences began with the merger of four programs—the Associate of Science degrees in Nursing, Practical Nursing, Radiography, and Sonography—to form a new school. ADU became a baccalaureate-level institution in 1998, when it took over the Southern Adventist University Baccalaureate Nursing Program. Since then, we've launched associate degrees in nuclear medicine technology, occupational therapy assistant, and pre-professional studies, as well as five bachelor’s degrees in health sciences, biomedical sciences, radiologic sciences, diagnostic medical sonography, and nursing.

In January of 2008, the University began its first master's-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.
