A Passion for Healthcare

“Earning my U.S. Army Airborne School basic parachutist wings was my ‘aha’ moment. That was when I realized that when I put my mind to something, I can accomplish it. I came to UNC Greensboro seeking a new opportunity as a Veteran. UNCG delivered that through the Veterans Access Program. The curriculum is well-balanced for veterans and provides all the assets and opportunities that we need. I am excited to walk across the graduation stage and get to work helping others as a nurse.”

- Edward Ottati, ‘19

Interim Dean Heidi Krowchuk Congratulates the Class of 2020

2020 is the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, a recognition that is fitting as nurses continue to fight on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Interim Dean Heidi Krowchuk congratulates the School of Nursing Class of 2020 and commend the graduates for the impact they’ve already made – and will continue to make – in their communities. “You are well prepared as UNCG nurses, and what you know about caring for patients, families, and communities is needed more now than ever,” says Krowchuk.

A Message from UNCG Alum Dr. Ernest Grant

UNC Greensboro's Nurses Answer the Call for Help

School of Nursing

The UNC Greensboro School of Nursing began in 1966 with a pre-licensure bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) program to prepare new registered nurses to properly care for patients. Since then, the School of Nursing has expanded to now offer degrees across multiple undergraduate and graduate programs. The RN-BSN program provides registered nurses with an associate degree the opportunity to earn a BSN. The School of Nursing offers a nationally recognized master’s program with concentrations in nursing education and nursing administration, as well as an MSN/MBA program in conjunction with UNCG’s Bryan School of Business and Economics. In addition, the School of Nursing boasts a PhD program in nursing science and a nationally recognized doctor of nursing practice (DNP) program for nurse anesthetists, adult-gerontologic primary care nurse practitioners, and nurse executive leaders.

Our graduates have high pass rates on licensure and certification exams and go on to successful careers as bedside nurses, educators, managers, leaders, researchers, and advanced practice nurses, many in North Carolina. Spartan nurses are highly sought after and prepared to meet the health care needs of the citizens of North Carolina and the nation.
