UNC’s School of Nursing has received $6.8 million to fund a world-class nursing simulation center and scholarships for second-career nursing students.
The donation from the Helene Fuld Health Trust, the nation’s largest charitable trust devoted exclusively to supporting nursing students and nursing education, is the largest private donation in the school’s history.
The gift contributes to a larger project to renew Carrington Hall. The renewal project received $45 million in appropriations from the N.C. General Assembly in July 2020 and is scheduled for groundbreaking in January 2023.
The $6.3 million Helene Fuld Health Trust Quality and Safety Education Center will be a centerpiece of the new Carrington, providing a state-of-the-art simulated clinical environment for nursing students and for interprofessional health education at Carolina.
The gift also provides $500,000 in scholarships for students enrolled in the school’s accelerated bachelor of science in nursing degree program, a rigorous and fast-paced second-degree program for students who have a bachelor’s degree in another subject and would like to obtain their nursing degree in four semesters.
