Dean Inez Tuck's statement on the suspension of admissions to the upper division of the nursing program:
We will continue implementing the thorough improvements that we’ve made to prepare graduates of our traditional four-year nursing program to pass the state licensing exam.
We anticipate seeing the full impact of these improvements over the next two years as graduates of the four-year program begin taking the exam after spending their entire four years with a stronger curriculum, more responsive faculty and administration, and higher admission standards.
We are continuing to build on the success of our Accelerated BSN and RN-to-BSN programs, as recommended by the Board of Governors. Over its first five years, the accelerated program has had a 96 percent first-time success rate on the licensing exam. We are expanding both programs.
The School of Nursing is fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing and has Full Approval status from the N.C. Board of Nursing.
We will continue to strengthen the School of Nursing, and we will continue to contribute well prepared graduates to the profession.
