RN to BSN: An Educational Mobility Initiative
This regional effort is part of a statewide initiative that assists registered nurse (RN) graduates from diploma and associate degree programs to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. The outreach program was developed after documentation of need was obtained from health care agencies and nursing professionals. It is designed for nurses in underserved areas without access to traditional university educational opportunities. Articulation agreements between East Carolina University and regional community colleges capitalize on the state's previous investment in nursing education.
The RN to BSN program is a cooperative effort between East Carolina University School of Nursing, Division of Continuing Education, and Eastern Area Health Education Center. Past outreach programs have been offered in Chowan, Carteret and Pasquotank counties. Currently there are programs underway in Wayne County and Pasquotank County.
