Being a “Carolina Nurse” has many dimensions.  This 7-minute video tells the story from the perspective of students, alumni, faculty, SON and hospital leaders who all experience the quality, energy and emotion of being connected to one of the leading Schools of Nursing in the United States.  Unrestricted private gifts made this video possible and we are grateful to our alumni and friends who provide on-going support to the School.  For giving opportunities, please contact Director of Advancement Norma_Hawthorne@unc.edu

Carolina Nursing in Honduras Over Spring Break 2009

The Honduras Service learning trip is alive and well! We have done over 1,000 health screenings and de-worming tx and vitamins to mostly children. We have a team of 33 students and volunteers. In addition to health screenings, we have done feeding programs at very poor community centers in Honduras. Our days are very long but spirits are good. It is a great team.
