With teaching methods that meld the best of both time-tested and innovative approaches; committed, caring faculty; rich opportunities for student research; and a curricular dedication to interprofessional education, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Nursing offers an undergraduate nursing program without peer.

From day one, the Carolina nurse is carefully trained to lead — applying the knowledge, skill and understanding gained at UNC to effectively advocate for the care, safety and well-being of the patient.

Carolina nurses have gone on to lead in hospital administration, nursing education, health care research, non-profit organizations, public health and policy, military and veterans affairs, and by bedsides near and far.

They are team-oriented, patient-centered professionals who are highly sought-after in whatever field of nursing they choose to pursue.

The UNC School of Nursing offers two options for the bachelors of science in nursing degree, the  traditional BSN and a 4-semester accelerated BSN  for students who already have an undergraduate degree.
