Regionally Increasing Baccalaureate Nurses (RIBN)
What is RIBN?
RIBN is a educational track to obtain a BSN targetted toward graduating high school seniors. The curriculum blends the best of both an ADN program and a BSN program.
This program will provide a seamless associate to baccalaureate nursing education for top academic students. The first three years of study will be at one of the Partner Community Colleges in collaboration with UNC Pembroke (UNCP). Upon successful completion of the first three years and after passing the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN), students will be eligible to practice and matriculate into the fourth year of the program at UNCP.
