The College was founded in 1942 by Cabarrus County Hospital to meet the need for registered nurses during World War II.

In 1998 the North Carolina General Assembly granted the College the authority to award bachelors degrees. In 2004, the General Assembly granted the College authority to award advanced degrees in nursing or allied health sciences.

The growth of the College necessitated construction of a new facility in 2004 on the campus of CMC-NorthEast in Concord. Enrollment at the College has more than doubled since 2000, and applications for admission have increased 61% since 2003.
