Knight Nurses Alumni Mentorship Program

The UCF College of Nursing's Knight Nurse Alumni Mentorship Program pairs nursing alumni with BSN students in their senior year as well as Second Degree BSN students who are looking for guidance as they transition into their nursing careers. As a graduate from the college, you are one of our greatest assets! Your valuable experience and insight when shared with our current student body has a huge impact. We would greatly value your participation and hope that if you do choose to mentor a student, you enjoy an enriching experience while reconnecting with the college and refining your mentorship skills.


The Knight Nurse Alumni Mentorship Program runs from September-April. The deadline to apply to be a Knight Nurse Mentor for the 2021-2022 academic year, is Friday, August 20.

We owe our successes in large part to the generous contributions of the alumni, friends, corporations, and foundations who have supported our efforts. At the College of Nursing, every gift has an impact that extends beyond the campus into our communities, and every gift is deeply appreciated. We thank those who have invested in the college and inspired our students and faculty to pursue their academic and professional dreams.
