As an integral part of its mission, each of the AHECs is committed to promoting educational mobility for all nurses. North Carolina continues to require more nurses prepared at the baccalaureate level and above. AHEC-sponsored off-campus degree programs provide flexible options for working nurses who wish to advance from RN to BSN, MSN and PhD. Additionally, the stateís need for advanced practice nurses continues to increase making accessibility of these programs even more important.
