Welcome to the nursing program at Fayetteville State University. Our journey in achieving nursing excellence began in 1992 through a joint partnership program with UNCP. This vibrant program has thrived throughout our history to meet the needs of Registered Nurses in this region and beyond. We continue to educate a large number of nurse leaders who play a significant role in the health maintenance of citizens in North Carolina and the rest of the country.
