RiBN ProgramENC RIBN (Eastern North Carolina Regionally Increasing Baccalaureate Nurses)

ENC RIBN program is a four-year nursing option in which students are dually-enrolled into Carteret Community College nursing program and East Carolina University.  This program is designed for high school seniors.

The first three years after high school graduation are spent at the community college taking general education and nursing courses along with one online course per fall and spring semesters at East Carolina University.  Upon successful completion of the third year at the community college, students would graduate from the Associate Degree Nursing program and be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam.  Upon successful completion of the fourth year of online nursing courses at ECU, a baccalaureate degree in nursing would be granted by ECU.
