In Memoriam: Robin Remsburg
Dr. Robin Remsburg ’82 MSN, the first graduate of UNCG to lead the School of Nursing, passed away in December. Dean since 2013, she grew the program, increasing enrollment and implementing the Post-BSN and Post-MSN Doctor of Nursing Practice program, expanding the RN-BSN program, and developing an accelerated Veterans Access Program for medically trained veterans to obtain their BSN degrees. She helped plan the Union Square Campus and the Nursing and Instructional Building.
A past president of the National Gerontological Nursing Association, Remsburg’s areas of expertise were geriatrics and gerontology, long-term care, national surveys, and nursing education. She established three gifts at UNCG: the Clinton William and Shirley Talbott Remsburg Endowed Scholarship in Nursing Fund; the Deans’ Terrace Fund; and the Dean Robin E. Remsburg Nursing Habit of Excellence Award Fund.
Dr. Heidi Krowchuk was appointed interim dean.
