UNC School of Nursing keeps quality in spite of cuts

When pushed to adjust to state funding cuts, the University’s School of Nursing chose quality over quantity. In February, the school announced it would shrink its incoming undergraduate class by 25 percent. Months later, prospective students are feeling the stress of increased competition, and the school is dealing with the possibility of more than half of its faculty retiring in the next five to 10 years.
