Message From The Director/Associate Dean

On behalf of faculty and staff in the North Carolina A&T School of Nursing, I would like to welcome you to our website. Our goal is to educate students to become professional nurses prepared to enter the workforce and provide culturally appropriate safe, evidence-based care.

We offer three entry options – traditional, accelerated and RN-BSN – which prepare our students with the knowledge and skills necessary for success in a rapidly changing society.

Our nursing students are part of a caring and active learning environment that includes traditional classroom methods, online delivery, hands-on lab experiences, high-fidelity simulation, and practice in a variety of healthcare settings.

As Director/Associate Dean, I work alongside a talented group of faculty and staff who are committed to our goals of excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service.

Our graduates possess the knowledge and competencies which position them to become clinicians, educators, researchers and leaders, in key roles in diverse environments within the nursing community worldwide.

I would like to invite you to the School of Nursing to explore new opportunities, reflect on our rich history, and find out more about our future endeavors.

We continue to create, discover, dream and love because that's what Aggie Nurses Do!!!

Dr. Terry D. Ward
Director/Associate Dean
