School Notes:

Carolinas College of Health Sciences is on the campus of Carolinas Medical Center (CMC), the area's only Level I trauma center. The college features a well-equipped computer lab, simulation labs and biology labs. Carolinas College of Health Sciences has a proud tradition of educating the region's best nurses and allied health providers. We offer a small-school environment with big-hospital opportunities and experiences. In the late 1980s, Carolinas HealthCare System administration recognized the need for a school and established the CMHA School of Nursing. A feasibility study was conducted in 1989 to validate the need for nurses at the local and statewide level. Degree granting authority was obtained through the Hospital Authority Act [NC General Stat 113E-23 (a)(31)] and was delegated to the school by the Board of Commissioners. In December 1993, CMHA's Board of Commissioners passed a resolution to incorporate the CMHA School of Nursing and to appoint a board of directors for the school. Degree granting authority was delegated to the board of directors. The school was located on Blythe Boulevard on the Carolinas Medical Center campus in metropolitan Charlotte, NC. The school moved into the newly renovated Rankin Education Center in July 1994. Academic programs are offered in Nursing, Pre-Nursing, Emergency Medical Sciences, Radiologic Technology, Surgical Technology, Medical Technology, General Education, Nurse Aide I, Phlebotomy and CPR / Life Support Courses. Carolinas College of Health Sciences is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) to award the Associate of Applied Science degree. The college also offers diploma and certificate-level educational programs.
