Durham Regional Hospital - Watts School of Nursing To care for our patients,nurturing the sick and strengthening the well, and to improve the health of the community we serve.

Watts graduates are prepared for evolving and challenging careers in nursing with a broad-based academic and clinical education. Students first complete a cohort of prerequisite courses through Mount Olive College (MOC) and then focus solely on nursing during the remaining four, sixteen-week semesters.

The first semester of the nursing program provides a beginning understanding of the nursing profession and a theoretical foundation for subsequent courses. Students begin clinical rotations during the first few weeks of this semester and continue to gain experience in different clinical settings right up to graduation. During the next three semesters, students study and participate in the spectrum of health care services across the lifespan. Their clinical experiences reflect the complex and dynamic nature of today’s health care delivery system.

For over a century, school traditions have provided a bond between past and present Watts students. Some traditions are very old, others have changed to fit the times, and parts of recent school events may be traditions-in-the-making.

We could go on and on about the traditions at Watts. We could share the sentiment of Black Banding or the excitement of the luncheon for seniors. But we’ll save these special moments until you can experience them for yourself.

Watts School of Nursing is located in Durham, North Carolina, which is the home of world-renowned Duke University Medical Center, Durham Regional Hospital, the Durham VA Medical Center, and numerous clinics and medical research laboratories. Called the "City of Medicine," Durham is a perfect place to begin your nursing career.

The Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area - one of the fastest growing areas in the United States - offers a wide variety of fine dining, entertainment, shopping, nightlife and historical sites. Triangle universities draw major concerts and sporting events.

Durham has a well-deserved reputation for promoting the arts, including the nationally acclaimed American Dance Festival. Just a few miles from Watts, Duke Forest offers acres of virgin forest and greenways for picnicking, jogging, or biking. And Durham is a short drive from either the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains or North Carolina's famed beaches.
