The demand for quality nurses was high during World War II, so Cabarrus County Hospital in Concord, North Carolina, established a school of nursing in 1942, initially enrolling sixteen students. The hospital continued to support the education of nurses and by the end of the twentieth century, the school added degree programs and assumed a new title, Cabarrus College of Health Sciences. The College has continued to expand its programs and facilities, opening the NorthEast Medical Center campus in 2004 and a simulation learning lab in 2011.
