The UNC School of Nursing community is dedicated to supporting active-duty military and veteran Tar Heels.

In 2016, the School launched an initiative for veteran and active-duty military students aimed at creating a smooth transition into the School’s academic programs.

Rebecca Kitzmiller, PhD, MHR, RN, BC, Assistant Professor and former Army Nurse coordinates the military initiative. In 2014 the school brought together a group of faculty, staff and students with military backgrounds to form the School’s Military Advisory Committee to create and guide this initiative.
