Welcome to the Department of Nursing at The University of North Carolina at Pembroke.
Exciting things are happening here as we begin the 2012-2013 academic year in UNCP's new state-of-the art Health Sciences Building. The future is bright for nursing at UNC Pembroke!
Despite the current economic climate we continue to have greater numbers of both pre-licensure BSN and RN-BSN students seeking to earn a baccalaureate degree.
Plans for a MSN in Nursing have been submitted and are under review at UNC General Administration.
Our graduates are actively being recruited to practice in varied healthcare settings in numerous geographic locations across North Carolina and the nation. The Department of Nursing is soaring toward excellence! Please browse our website to learn more about the Department of Nursing, our educational options and our faculty.
The Department of Nursing builds on a rich heritage that began with the establishing of the Southeastern North Carolina Nursing Consortium in 1992, a joint RN-BSN completion program between UNCP and Fayetteville State University.
The Consortium was the first BSN program in North Carolina to receive Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) accreditation for 10 years with no recommendations. With the separation of the Consortium August 1, 2004, the UNCP RN-BSN nursing program transitioned to a Department of Nursing within the University structure.
The Department of Nursing is committed to the tripartite roles of teaching, research, and community service that contribute to the cultural, intellectual, and social development of professional nurses in southeastern North Carolina.
Students are provided the opportunity to obtain a multicultural education that is grounded in the arts, sciences and humanities; that is congruent with standards of professional nursing practice; and that prepares them for lifelong learning, professional development, and service to others.
To that end, the Department of Nursing has developed and will continue to develop programs to support students in the development of skills necessary to excel in their careers as professional nurses.
The University of North Carolina at Pembroke Department of Nursing is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. To view accreditation standards, please visit: www.aacn.nche.edu/accreditation/value.htm.
