Program Description

The RIBN Regionally Increasing Baccalaureate Nurses program allows a student to be co-admitted to VGCC and NC A&T State University for 4 years.  During Year 1, the student takes general education courses at VGCC towards the ADN and BSN degrees.  Years 2-3 are when the student is enrolled in the ADN program at VGCC.  The student also takes one online class at NC A&T per semester during Years 1-3.  At the end of Year 3, the student graduates from the ADN program at VGCC and proceeds to obtain a license as an RN.  Year 4 is completed at NC A&T and results in the completion of the BSN degree.

In order to work as a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) in North Carolina, students must complete a nursing educational program and then apply for licensure with the North Carolina Board of Nursing. A component of obtaining a license as an RN or LPN is passing the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX). Graduates of an RN program take the NCLEX-RN and graduates of a PN program take the NCLEX-PN.v

Admissions Procedure

The School of Health Sciences (SHS) strives to provide admission processes that are fair and equitable for all students who have the desire to become healthcare professionals. Additionally, we have an obligation to set our students up for programmatic success and board passage.

The new SHS admission processes for the nursing programs will select students based on the completion of the listed minimum requirements and on a first completion basis. If one of the nursing programs is your desired program of study it is important that you begin the process NOW.

We recognize that no one process is perfect; however, we will continue to monitor our processes to improve and to ensure equitable opportunities for all applicants. Please read the admission requirements very carefully and follow the instructions as directed.
