ENC aRIBN(Eastern North Carolina Accelerated Regionally Increasing Baccalaureate Nurses)
This program is designed for top academic students that have completed all of the first year general education courses and pre-requisite courses for the RIBN program with a “C” or higher. Applicants must seek admission to the Community College Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program first. Once notified of acceptance into the ADN program, students may apply to the ENC aRIBN program at ECU. Students accepted into the aRIBN program are dually-enrolled in the community college and ECU. Following acceptance, students enter the community college nursing program the next fall. Students take an online course at ECU each fall and spring while attending the community college nursing program. Upon graduation from the Associate Degree Nursing program, students are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam. Students continue taking online nursing courses at ECU for the final year of the program. Upon successful completion of the aRIBN program, students graduate from ECU with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. Students are not eligible for aRIBN if they have been unsuccessful or dismissed from a traditional baccalaureate or associate degree program.
