Nursing Program Offers New Path for Degree

A new program from the UNC Charlotte School of Nursing will allow top students at local institutions of higher education to transition seamlessly from earning an associate’s degree to starting a bachelor’s.

The early entry option paves the way for nursing students at affiliated schools to gain early acceptance and reserve a spot in the RN to BSN program at UNC Charlotte. Students from Gaston and Central Piedmont Community Colleges and Carolina’s College of Health Sciences are currently able to take advantage of the program.

"This provides the students many benefits including the best advisement, the best employment prospects and the best education possible through a seamless process," said RN to BSN program coordinator Susan Lynch.

Businesses, organizations and individuals are dependent upon computers and computer networks to perform critical work in an ever-increasing technology-driven economy. As this dependency grows, threats from mischievous pranksters, criminals who steal valuable and sensitive information and nations engaged in espionage continue to increase.

UNC Charlotte is a leader in education and research that addresses the many vulnerabilities in cyberspace. The annual Cyber Security Symposium is an opportunity for attendees to become more aware about important topics and possible solutions in the field. This year’s event is scheduled from 8:15 AM to 5:00 PM, Wednesday, Oct. 5, at UNC Charlotte. Early registration discounts are available online.

For 17 years, this annual symposium, co-hosted by the College of Computing and Informatics and Charlotte Research Institute at UNC Charlotte, has brought national leaders to share their knowledge and leadership. Bank of America is the title sponsor of the 2016 symposium.
