“There is no such thing as a menial task in caring for a human being.” — Elizabeth Kemble, founding dean

Indeed, there is not. And since its founding, the UNC School of Nursing has held this view, purposefully and proudly answering the high calling of caring for human beings through our teaching, research and service. Ranked in the top 10 of two world rankings for schools of nursing, Carolina Nursing excels at advancing the art and science of nursing care, first for our neighbors here at home, and then around the world.
