First RN2BSN Cohort set to graduate
 
WELDON, N.C. – Halifax Community College (HCC) formed a partnership with North Carolina Central University (NCCU), Halifax Regional Medical Center and the Upper Coastal Plains Learning Council in 2009-10 to extend one of HCC’s oldest programs into the larger regional area. Individuals who were registered nurses (RNs) were invited to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree through NCCU at HCC, creating the RN2BSN cohort group.

Now, the first cohort has completed all course requirements for graduation from NCCU. There are nine graduates including:
  • Anita Bowser
  • Laticia Bryant
  • Ivy Caudle
  • Janes Clark
  • Mary Downey
  • Amie Jordan
  • Karen Kinyon
  • Letisha Richardson
  • Vanessa Wolgemuth
The RN2BSN program is a complement to the associate degree nursing (ADN) program that HCC already has in place. The RN2BSN program through NCCU at HCC allows nurses to continue to work, care for their families and advance their education in their own community. The program is designed for the working professional. It offers face to face instruction, advisement and instruction to technology and learning. Plans are for the next cohort to begin spring 2014.
