Career and College Promise Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Pathway (P1032C)

Certificate

The Career and College Promise (CCP) ADN Pathway is designed for high school juniors and seniors who wish to begin their educational studies toward the Associate in Nursing degree and a Baccalaureate degree in Nursing. The Pathway is based on Blocks 1 through 3 of the Uniform Articulation Agreement between the University of North Carolina’s Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing programs and the North Carolina Community College Associate Degree Nursing Programs which was approved by the State Board of Community Colleges and the UNC Board of Governors.

A student who completes an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Nursing, which includes the courses listed below, with a GPA of at least 2.0 and a grade of C or better and completes the courses in Blocks 2-3 of the Uniform Articulation Agreement between the University of North Carolina’s Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing programs and the North Carolina Community College Associate Degree Nursing Programs with a GPA of at least 2.0 and a grade of C or better, and who holds a current unrestricted license as a Registered Nurse in North Carolina will have fulfilled the UNC institutions lower-division general education requirements as well as nursing program entry requirements. However, because nursing program admissions are competitive, no student is guaranteed admission to the program of his or her choice.

NOTE: The minimum GPA for RCC’s Associate Degree program is 2.8 in general education courses. Applicants must have a GPA of 2.8 or greater in the Associate Degree and Nursing program general education courses by the published deadline date for submitting complete program checklists to the Admissions Office.

Employment Outlook

Employment of registered nurses is projected to grow 7% from 2019 to 2029, faster than the average for all occupations. Growth will occur for a number of reasons, including an increased emphasis on preventive care; increasing rates of chronic conditions, such as diabetes and obesity; and demand for healthcare services from the baby-boom population, as this group leads longer and more active lives.
