Is Nursing for You?

Everybody knows that nurses help evaluate, diagnose and treat health problems. Not everybody knows that nursing is a diverse and rewarding discipline that combines compassion with sophisticated health technology. It takes a special kind of person to be a good nurse. If you'd like to help people meet basic health needs, adapt to physical changes, recover from illness and die with dignity, then nursing is definitely a major to explore further. An aptitude for math and science is helpful in this profession, which is in great demand worldwide.

Employment opportunities for graduates with a degree in nursing include becoming a hospital staff nurse, school nurse, community health nurse, home care nurse or emergency service nurse. Graduates may work at a variety of clinical practice sites with clients of all ages. Graduate education in nursing opens many more doors including teaching or opportunities in advanced practice.

The UNC School of Nursing offers an excellent, well-respected program that is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and the Colorado State Board of Nursing.
