Community colleges focus on vocational and career development. Their students benefit from focused teaching and are prepared with skills relevant for the workplace. Community college programs are typically shorter in duration than those offered by traditional four-year institutions. Therefore, they are an attractive choice for students who wish to begin work quickly.

Qualification options

At four-year colleges and universities, undergraduate students typically undertake a bachelor’s degree program of study. North Carolina is home to roughly 30 four-year schools offering nursing degree programs. At many of these institutions, nurses may also pursue graduate nursing studies to enhance their career progression.
