Nursing is a wonderful addition to our health programs at Campbell University and to the state of North Carolina. First, team work is critical in health care today, and our nursing program will add another dimension to our interprofessional education emphasis. Our nursing students will study and train alongside students in medicine, pharmacy, public health, physical therapy, and physician assistance, creating a learning environment for our students that mimics real health care settings. Second, nursing strengthens our mission to serve our neighbors by expanding access to health care, especially to those who are in rural and underserved areas. Nursing, like other health professions, is in great demand. I am proud of the leadership that Campbell is taking in meeting the health needs of the people in the state and region.
