NC Community Colleges Skip 4-Year Nursing Degree

Filed under: Online Learning News — Ray Schroeder @ 12:03 am


The state’s community college board on Friday opted against launching a feasibility study into the pros and cons of offering a four-year nursing degree. About a half-dozen states offer advanced nursing education at community colleges. A study by community college leaders and health-industry groups said the idea is one way to reach a goal of 80 percent of nurses holding four-year degrees by 2020 as the health care environment gets more complex. The community college board decided instead to develop online learning and expand the ability of graduates to earn nursing degrees from a public university.
