Dean Remsburg with dog

The family of the late Dr. Robin Remsburg ’82 MSN, who served as the dean of the UNC Greensboro School of Nursing from 2013 until her passing in December 2020, has established a scholarship in her name with a gift of $50,000 to the University.

The Dr. Robin E. Remsburg Endowed Scholarship will honor her legacy and provide financial support for senior nursing students who exemplify the School of Nursing’s operating principles known as GRIT and have the potential to further promote the nursing profession.

GRIT, which stands for Good intentions and will, Respect, Inspire, and Teamwork, were developed with Remsburg’s assistance. Her parents, Bill and Shirley Remsburg, sister Mignon White, and brother Terryle Remsburg provided the gift to establish her scholarship.

“This is such a kind gesture for our students in remembrance of Dean Remsburg’s legacy.”

Dr. Debra Barksdale, dean of the UNCG School of Nursing

Remsburg was the first graduate of UNCG to lead the School of Nursing. During her tenure as dean, she grew the nursing program, increased enrollment, and implemented the Post-Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and Post-Master of Science in Nursing Doctor of Nursing Practice programs. She expanded the RN-to-BSN program and supported an accelerated Veterans Access Program for medically trained veterans to obtain their BSN degrees.

Remsburg, who passed away following a lengthy illness, was also involved in the planning of the Union Square Campus and the Nursing and Instructional Building.
