Regionally Increasing Baccalaureate Nurses

Wilmington RIBN is a partnership between Cape Fear Community College and University of North Carolina-Wilmington. Each Fall students are dually enrolled in CFCC and UNCW. Students complete the first three years home-based at CFCC with general study courses the first year and then nursing courses the second and third years. Students will be enrolled in one UNCW online course per year for the first three years, not missing two consecutive semesters, and not including summers. Students will receive their Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) at the end of the third year. After passing the NCLEX-RN students will be licensed to practice as a RN and matriculate into the fourth year of the program. The fourth year will be completed entirely online through UNCW to complete the Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (BSN). In the fourth year, students will complete coursework in gerontological and community health nursing, as well as evidenced-based practice and leadership development.
