- Faculty Support
Developing Leaders: Student SupportWe are committed to ensuring that the most talented students can afford to become Carolina nurses. Fifty-eight percent of our students still have unmet need after receiving financial aid. With your help, we can alleviate some of this burden through scholarships and emergency funds, allowing our best and brightest to devote their full attention to becoming the nurse leaders our health-care system needs.
Advancing Health: Facilities SupportCarrington Hall has been the home of Carolina Nursing for five decades. Despite truly dramatic changes in health care and technology, Carrington remains largely unchanged. That it’s past time for a renovation is beyond dispute by University leadership, but we need the help of private donors to fund the upgrades that will allow for the best of today’s teaching methods and new technologies, and ensure our students have access to the most advanced and comprehensive education possible.
- Global Impact
Improving Lives: Local to Global SupportDonor support has made some of the School’s most useful service to our state’s citizens possible. Our mobile health clinic initiative is only one example of a donor-funded program that is already showing great benefits for the underserved in our local community and providing a cost-effective model of practice that can be set in place at points all over the globe. Our faculty export the knowledge and expertise gained through local research and service to improve nursing care worldwide. At Carolina Nursing, your dollars really do go far, and are key to expanding the programs and partnerships that enable this local to global impact.
