RIBN Student Resources

Plans of Study

The RIBN Plan of Study is considered a draft until the student meets with the Student Success Advocate.  At this meeting, the student will create an individual four year plan.  The four year plan will outline courses that are needed to graduate by following the RIBN Pathway.  Students enrolled through RIBN will have preferred admission to the community college and UNCP's nursing program.

The first year of the program is spent completing prerequisite courses at the community college.  The second and third year are spent in the ADN (nursing) program at the community college.  After the third year, students are eligible to take the NCLEX.  The fourth year is spent at UNCP to complete the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.  Sample four year plans can be viewed below:
