Welcome to the School of Nursing at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro - a place where dreams come true! I want to express my deepest gratitude to Dr. Lynne Pearcey, retiring dean of the SoN. For 23 years Dr. Pearcey provided visionary and outstanding leadership for our school. As a UNCG alum, I am thrilled to be a part of this exceptional school. My education at UNCG SoN launched my academic career and led to opportunities that I never dreamed were possible.
This is an exciting time to be a nurse and part of the nursing community here at UNCG. Whether you are a new applicant, student, interested parent, valued alum, member of our distinguished faculty or esteemed community partner, you will find this website informative. We hope this is the beginning of your journey to fulfilling your career dream.
