Nursing Students

Are you a nurse, a student nurse or just thinking about nursing as a career?

It would be hard to find a profession with more diversity and opportunities than nursing. It would be equally hard to find a better place to enrich your nursing experience than Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center (WFBMC).

Though WFBMC no longer has a School of Nursing, there are several local options to start your career in nursing. While there are many fine nursing schools in our state and across the nation, these schools do clinical rotations at WFBMC
