Abstract: On the crisp fall morning of September 14, 1951, a group of 27 young, White, women arrived on the segregated campus of UNC-Chapel Hill to begin their historic journey as the first class of Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree students in North Carolina. Recruited from across the state (and 2 from out of state), they became the first freshmen women to live on campus. Of the original class members, 17 graduated four years later. All passed the state board examinations and became leaders in our profession.
