WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – UNCW will begin offering two of its nursing and education programs online with carousel enrollment in the coming months.

"We are honored to offer registered nurses a platform to earn one of today's most desirable degrees at UNCW in a new, innovative, and flexible way," said UNCW Chancellor Gary L. Miller in a news release posted on PRNewswire. "Furthermore, we see this as a way to give back to our community at large. UNCW and graduates of these programs will jointly help move the nursing and teaching workforce and North Carolina forward."

According to the news release, the Registered Nurse-to-Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN) and the Master of Education with a specialization in Elementary Education (M.Ed., Elementary Education) programs will be offered online.

UNCW is using Academic Partnerships to help convert the courses into an online format. The online learning company will work closely with UNCW faculty to make sure the online degree programs maintain the highest educational standards.

According to a news release, the programs were already available online, but the carousel system allows students to complete classes in 7.5 week intervals instead of the traditional 15 week offerings.

The online RN-BSN program will begin later in August and the M.Ed., Elementary Education program will start in October.

Applications for these courses are now being accepted. Click here to apply or learn more about the programs.
