East Carolina University (School of Nursing)




The baccalaureate curriculum in nursing provides for 4 academic years plus 1 summer session of study in general education and professional nursing. Students are admitted to the major after completing required pre-requisite course work in social, behavioral, and natural sciences; and in the humanities. Clinical practice for students is planned in conjunction with classroom instruction and involves placements in over 50 agencies including hospitals, home health, public health, private homes, schools, clinics and other community agencies.

The undergraduate curriculum reflects societal needs for nursing services and contemporary changes in the roles of nurses in the health care system, and emphasizes essential concepts in the preparation of the nurse generalist. The school also admits registered nurses into the baccalaureate program and recognizes their prior knowledge and competencies through a variety of advanced placement strategies. The RN/BSN program for RNs is designed to meet the needs of working RNs. RNs on this track are closely advised and counseled, their individual talents are evaluated as part of placement in courses, and they are monitored for integration of educational experiences with career goals. For more information on the RN/BSN program check out the RN/BSN homepage.

The East Carolina University School of Nursing educates professional nurses, capable of caring for the diverse needs of our patients. We are dedicated to creating a diverse faculty, staff, and student body that reflect our community, as well as to enhancing their cultural competence as it relates to healthcare.
