ENC-aRIBN (Eastern NC 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 Carteret CC 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 with Carteret CC and ECU. Following acceptance, students enter the Carteret CC nursing program and concurrently take online courses at ECU. Upon graduation from the Associate Degree Nursing program Carteret CC, students are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam. After successful completion of the Carteret CC ADN program and passing the NCLEX-RN exam, students will continue taking online nursing courses at ECU for the final year of the program. After their final year, students are anticipated to 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.
Interested students in the ENC-aRIBN program should contact the program chair for more information.
