SON AHEC OFFICE

The School of Nursing partners with the NC Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) to provide continuing nursing education and training in communities throughout the state to meet the primary health care needs of North Carolinians.

Nine regional centers comprise the North Carolina AHEC system and are supported primarily by state and local funds. Each NC AHEC Program (Mountain, Northwest, Charlotte, Greensboro, Southern Regional, Wake, Area L, Eastern, and South Eastern) is staffed by an interdisciplinary faculty, including one or more nursing educators. Since the program’s beginning in 1972, nursing education and clinical training have been an integral part of its mission to expose nurses to new technology and innovative methods and models of professional nursing practice.
