It's no secret that the East Carolina University College of Nursing prepares nurses to serve North Carolina. The college educates the most new nurses of any institution in the state, and its graduate programs train students for a variety of advanced roles - graduates care for patients across the lifespan, from the tiniest babies as neonatal nurse practitioners to the elderly as adult-gerontology clinical nurse specialists.
