Welcome to Nursing Department Resources

Welcome to the Charles W. Chesnutt Library Guide for Nursing

About the School of Nursing

From Dr. Afua Arhin, the Associate Dean of the School of Nursing: "Welcome to the nursing program at Fayetteville State University. As with any journey, we have met our share of challenges which have been integral to our history and our evolution. As of May 20, 2011, the Board of Nursing approved the reinstatement of the Generic BSN Program, and we invite you to browse our website and explore the exciting learning opportunities in the field of nursing professions that we have to offer.

Our journey in achieving nursing excellence began in 1992 with our RN to BSN program. This vibrant program has thrived through-out 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.

We are currently in a positive transition mode and working on the development of new nursing programs as well as the recent move to our new home in the state-of-the-art Southeastern North Carolina Nursing Education and Research Center. This building is technologically enhanced to support nursing education of the 21st century as well as the Clinical Simulation Center where you will experience the best in human patient simulation."


The Department of Nursing at Fayetteville State University (FSU) was established in 1992 to provide baccalaureate education to registered nurses through an RN to BSN completion program.  The program holds membership in the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), a subsidiary of AACN.


CConsistent with the mission of the university, the mission of the Department of Nursing at Fayetteville State University (FSU) is to educate  a diverse population in southeastern North Carolina and beyond to be culturally competent, ethical, and caring nurses for a global society. Nursing is a discipline that builds on knowledge from nursing theory; the natural, social, and applied sciences; and the humanities. The Department of Nursing is committed to educating graduates who will provide evidence-based and patient-centered care. The faculty value the systematic and purposeful application of the nursing process to promote the optimal health of clients throughout the life cycle and in a variety of settings. The Department of Nursing strives to produce graduates who appreciate lifelong learning and are contributing members to the profession of nursing, the community, and society.
