Asheboro, NC -- The University Center of Randolph County now offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree thanks to Winston-Salem State University (WSSU).
Dr. Robert Shackleford, President of Randolph Community College, signed the agreement to welcome its new partner along with WSSU Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Dr. Brenda Allen.
"We are very excited about this opportunity to welcome Winston-Salem State University to the University Center of Randolph County," said Shackleford. "Now our Associate Degree Nursing graduates can get a bachelor's degree right here on our campus."
"We are happy to add you to our (program)," said Allen. "You have some great students here and we're happy to move them to the next level."
WSSU has 16 satellite sites across North Carolina and enrolls more than 400 nursing students and 70 adjunct instructors. According to Dr. Peggy Valentine, Dean of the School of Health Sciences at WSSU, anyone who already has an Associate's Degree can earn a Bachelor's Degree from WSSU in 13 months.
"It is a very fast-paced program," said Dr. Valentine. The first students will start in the program this fall; the classes will be located on RCC's Asheboro Campus with instructors employed by WSSU.
