The UNC Chapel Hill School of Nursing community is dedicated to supporting “Active-Duty and Veteran Tarheels” who serve or have served in our military. The UNC School of Nursing recently launched an initiative for veteran and active-duty military students aimed at creating a smooth transition into the School’s academic programs. Rebecca Kitzmiller, PhD, MHR, RN, BC, Assistant Professor and former Army Nurse coordinates the military initiative. In 2014 the school brought together a group of faculty, staff and students with military backgrounds to form the School’s Military Advisory Committee, to assist in guiding this initiative.
