This campaign ended on May 13, 2017, but you can still make a gift to The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill by clicking here!

Nurses Week may be over, but you can still support our nurses! Give a gift that helps UNC nurses today.

Nursing is more than a job - it’s a calling! Nurses impact our lives 365 days a year.

Do you know a special nurse that you would like to thank? Are you proud of a nursing student studying hard to take on this critical role? Would you or your family like to show appreciation? You now have that chance!  

First observed in 1954, “National Nurse Week” was introduced on a bill in Congress signifying the 100-year anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s mission to treat wounded soldiers during the Crimean War.  In the early 1990’s, based in an American Nurses Association Board of Directors action, the recognition of nurses and their contribution to community and national health was expanded to a week-long event.  This year we celebrate National Nurses Week May 6-12.

Help support nurses of today...

  • make a gift to UNC Medical Center Nursing Excellence Fund which provides much needed funding for continuing education for current UNC nursing staff.

Help support nurses of tomorrow...

  • make a gift to the UNC School of Nursing’s Student Scholarship fund. This fund is an unrestricted fund established to assist nursing students with their education. 

Celebrate your colleagues, classmates and friends. Your support will pay it forward and make a difference in someone’s health care experience! Give a gift in honor of a nurse, and their name will be posted on our #UNCNursesWeek Honor Roll.
