From the Dean

Dean Brown
Winter 2015

Dear Friends,

If service to our communities is part of East Carolina University's mission, it's in the College of Nursing's DNA. Our dedication to transforming health through education, leadership, scholarship and service is evident in all we do.

It's especially apparent in the way we prepare our students, whose first-time pass rates on the nursing licensure exam average almost 10 percentage points higher than the national average.
