ReAnna Greene was a 2011 graduate of the BSN program in the UCF College of Nursing, who tragically lost her life in April, 2015.

The Greene family established a golf tournament in her memory to raise funds for student scholarships at her high school, the University of Maryland, where ReAnna was studying for her doctorate, and UCF, where she received her bachelor’s degree.

The first annual tournament was held on October 18. More than one hundred golfers raised $8,000. UCF was the recipient of $5,000, which will support nursing students involved with the UCF Student Nurses Association, an organization where ReAnna served as vice president.

An exceptional student at UCF, Greene’s nursing philosophy was, “we cure sometimes, but care always.” She believed that nursing was not just a job, but something that must be approached with passion and respect for human dignity and life.

She had moved to Maryland, where she was working as a trauma nurse at the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.  She was pursuing a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree at the University of Maryland, and serving as a teaching assistant there.
