LPN RIBN:  Associate in Applied Science (Forsyth Tech)

                       Bachelor of Science in Nursing (WSSU)

Regionally Increasing Baccalaureate Nurses (RIBN) is a statewide initiative coordinated by the Foundation for Nursing Excellence that partners community colleges with universities in North Carolina.  These partnerships allow students to earn both an associate and baccalaureate degree in nursing over a four year course of study.  Forsyth Tech has partnered with Winston-Salem State University to offer a similar three-year pathway to LPNs desiring to earn an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) from Forsyth Tech and a Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing (BSN) from WSSU. 

The LPN RIBN curriculum includes all coursework included in the LPN to ADN Transition program at Forsyth Tech, as well as all general education and baccalaureate nursing classes required to complete a BSN degree.  Upon completion of NUR 214 with a grade of “B” or higher, students are awarded credit for the following ADN courses:  NUR 111, NUR 112, NUR 113, NUR 212.  This course work includes and builds upon the domains of healthcare, nursing practice, and the holistic individual.  Content emphasizes the nurse as a member of the interdisciplinary team providing safe, individualized care while employing evidence-based practice, quality improvement, and informatics.  RIBN provides students with the knowledge, skills, and strategies to integrate safety and quality into nursing care, to practice in a dynamic environment, and to meet individual needs which impact health, quality of life, and achievement of potential. 

LPN RIBN students are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) exam to become licensed as a registered nurse (RN) in North Carolina following successful completion of the first two years of study. After passing the NCLEX-RN, RIBN students may work part-time as an RN while completing third-year coursework at WSSU to complete their BSN.  The BSN degree provides expanded employment and advancement opportunities for RNs and positions them to continue their education at the graduate level.

LPN RIBN Minimum Admissions Requirements:

  1. Successful completion of an accredited (or state approved) practical nursing program.
  2. Current unencumbered license to practice as an LPN in the state of North Carolina.
  3. A minimum of six months of full-time employment as an LPN.

  7. Applicants must be accepted at WSSU for fall semester of the first year of RIBN.
  8. Applicants must have an adjusted individual score that is equal to or greater than 60% on the Test of Essential Academic Skills.

RIBN: Associate in Applied Science (Forsyth Tech)

            Bachelor of Science in Nursing (WSSU)

Regionally Increasing Baccalaureate Nurses (RIBN) is a statewide initiative coordinated by the Foundation for Nursing Excellence that partners community colleges with universities in North Carolina.  These partnerships allow students to earn both an associate and baccalaureate degree in nursing over a four-year period. Forsyth Tech has partnered with Winston-Salem State University to offer this opportunity to students desiring to earn an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) from Forsyth Tech and a Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing (BSN) from WSSU. 

The RIBN curriculum includes all coursework included in the Associate Degree Nursing program at Forsyth Tech, as well as all general education and baccalaureate nursing courses required to complete a BSN degree.  This course work includes and builds upon the domains of healthcare, nursing practice, and the holistic individual.  Content emphasizes the nurse as a member of the interdisciplinary team providing safe, individualized care while employing evidence-based practice, quality improvement, and informatics.  RIBN provides students with the knowledge, skills, and strategies to integrate safety and quality into nursing care, to practice in a dynamic environment, and to meet individual needs which impact health, quality of life, and achievement of potential.  

RIBN students are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) exam to become licensed as a registered nurse (RN) in North Carolina following successful completion of the first three years of study. After passing the NCLEX-RN, RIBN students may work part-time as an RN while completing fourth-year coursework at WSSU to complete their BSN.  The BSN degree provides expanded employment and advancement opportunities for RNs and positions them to continue their education at the graduate level.

RIBN Minimum Admissions Requirements:

  1. Applicants must be accepted at WSSU.
  2. Applicants must have an SAT or ACT equivalence score of 500 or higher in Critical Reading or Writing and 500 or higher in Math.  Minimum placement testing scores will be accepted in lieu of SAT or ACT scores.
  3. Applicants must have a GPA of 2.6 or higher for high school or any completed college course work.
  4. Applicants must have an adjusted individual score that is equal to or greater than 60% on the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS V).

Meeting minimum eligibility requirements does not guarantee admission to RIBN as enrollment is limited.  Applicants are ranked and selected based on GPA and TEAS scores.

Additional Requirements:

Once admitted to RIBN, students must meet the following additional requirements:

  1. Achieve a grade of “C” or better in all required courses, and a grade of B or better in NUR courses.
  2. Maintain dual enrollment at Forsyth Tech and WSSU by completing at least one WSSU course during two semesters (Fall, Spring, or Summer) of each year for the first three years of study
  3. Pass the NCLEX-RN between the third and fourth years of study
  4. Before the fall semester of the second year:

  • Complete a NC approved Certified Nurse Aide 1 Program that includes theory, lab, and clinical components
  • Provide documentation that they are currently credentialed as a Nurse Aide 1 (NA1) with the NC DHSR Nurse Aide Registry
  • Provide documentation that they have completed an American Heart Association Health Care Provider class and are currently certified in CPR
  • Pass a criminal background check/drug screen (as required by clinical facilities) and other health-related requirements of the Associate in Applied Science in Nursing program at Forsyth Tech

For more information about RIBN, please see the Allied Health/Nursing Admissions webpage at www.forsythtech.edu.

Curriculum Description

The Associate in Engineering (AE) degree shall be granted for a planned program of study consisting of a minimum of 60 semester hours of credit (SHC) of courses. Within the degree program, the institution shall include opportunities for the achievement of competence in reading, writing, oral communication, fundamental mathematical skills, and basic computer use.

The degree plan includes required general education and prerequisite courses that are acceptable to all state funded Bachelor of Engineering programs. Students who follow the degree progression plan will meet the entrance requirements at all of the North Carolina public Bachelor of Science Engineering programs. Associate in Engineering graduates may then apply to any of these programs without taking additional and sometimes duplicative courses. Admission to Engineering programs is highly competitive and admission is not guaranteed.
