ENC-RIBN (Eastern NC Accelerated Regionally Increasing Baccalaureate Nurses)
ENC RIBN program is a four-year nursing option in which students are dually-enrolled into the Carteret CC 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 Carteret CC taking general education and nursing courses along with one online ECU course every fall and spring semester. Upon successful completion of the third year at Carteret CC, students will graduate from the Carteret CC Associate Degree Nursing program and be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam. In the student’s fourth year, they will continue taking online ECU nursing courses. Upon successful completion of ECU course work, students will graduate from ECU with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.
Please note that students must apply to the ENC RIBN program through ECU first and designate the Carteret CC nursing program as their school. Applicants will be notified of acceptance into the ENC RIBN program in the spring semester.
Interested students in the ENC-aRIBN program should contact the program chair for more information.
