Mrs. Marjorie Land began her lifetime of service in healthcare as a young girl, while accompanying her mother to the small rural hospital where she worked as a nursing assistant. This early training and encouragement was a great benefit to Mrs. Land when she enrolled as a nursing student at North Carolina A&T. She joined the staff at Memorial Hospital just weeks after earning her B.S. in nursing, making her part of the first generation of African American nurses in the hospital. Over her 41 year nursing career, Mrs. Land has put an emphasis on the promise to "do no harm." She served on the Institutional Review Board at UNC hospitals and brought her expertise and care to house calls. Mrs. Land continues to serve her community through her membership in St. Paul AME Church.
