The Catherine W. Wood School of Nursing at Campbell University is designed to provide students with the training and education necessary to enter the workforce as a registered nurse. Campbell is dedicated to helping students become the best health care professionals they can be by offering interprofessional education opportunities, top of the line training facilities, and first-hand experience with rural health care needs.
According to the Health Resources and Services Administration, the supply of registered nurses is projected to exceed demand in 34 states; however, 16 states will likely experience a nursing shortage through 2025, including North Carolina and South Carolina. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing data show that 79% of employers are now requiring or expressing a strong preference for nurses with a baccalaureate degree.
