Dean's Welcome

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the graduate program at ECU College of Nursing. We are so pleased to have such a diverse and well-qualified group of students to begin their studies with us this year. As you know, the health care industry is undergoing unprecedented change and the need for nursing personnel is at its height. Advanced practice nurses are serving in a growing array of roles in both institutional and community settings and the possibilities for continued expansion of these roles is unlimited. Our faculty working with students, alumni, and nursing practice colleagues have crafted an exciting curriculum designed to prepare our graduates for a variety of specialty roles for now and in the future.

Technology integration has made it possible for many students to complete their programs online and thus increase the program's accessibility to working nurses. While the program is designed to be a growth experience, hopefully it will be fun for you as well. Please do take advantage of all the College and University has to offer students as you embark on the next career level through graduate education.
