Welcome from the Dean

On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students, I extend to you a warm welcome to the School of Nursing at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University in Greensboro, North Carolina. The School of Nursing, located in the beautiful piedmont area of North Carolina, is a landmark institution for educating nurses of color since its opening in 1953. The School of Nursing offered one of the first Baccalaureate degrees in nursing in North Carolina.

We are dynamic community of learners and scholars who strive to improve the health of our community and achieve academic excellence. Our educational programs are flexible and affordable. We are engaged in clinical partnerships throughout the Triad region with a focus on diabetes and health disparities. Our graduates are leaders in professional organizations, health care agencies, colleges and universities, and they serve honorably in the armed forces. We value diversity and multiculturalism and prepare nurses to provide quality compassionate care. Our students are engaged in Interprofessional education (IPE) with other members of the health care team.

Our students come from high schools from across the state of North Carolina and are graduates of community colleges and 4 year universities with prior associate’s or bachelor’s degrees. Our well designed curricula include cutting edge nursing knowledge delivered in a block format across semesters on university and partner campuses, in web-enhanced courses or online to accommodate the schedules of working nurses.   

These are exciting times for all of us at the School of Nursing. I invite you to learn more about our program by browsing our webpage or you may join us for one of our campus information sessions.

With warmest regards,


Inez Tuck, RN, PhD,
Dean and Professor
