Paul M. Wiles School of Nursing at Forsyth Tech Partners with Winston-Salem State University to offer RIBN

RIBN, Regionally Increasing Baccalaureate Nursing, is an initiative coordinated by the Foundation for Nursing Excellence that partners community colleges and universities in North Carolina to provide a seamless associate to baccalaureate nursing education.  Forsyth Tech and Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) will offer this option for nursing students beginning in the fall of 2014.   RIBN students will take one online class each semester at WSSU while completing onsite classes at Forsyth Tech during the first three years of study.   After completing their associate nursing degree, RIBN students will be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam before continuing their fourth year of study at WSSU to complete their BSN.

Interested students and parents can learn more about RIBN by visiting the Allied Health/Nursing Admissions page at or by attending an information session at the Paul M. Wiles School of Nursing, Room 278, on Thursday, March 27th at 5:30 PM.    Questions?   Email Susan Maloney, MSN, RN at or call (336) 757-3617.
