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.
