The RIBN program was built with both quality and affordability in mind. RIBN is an innovative way to earn a highly valuable baccalaureate Nursing degree at extremely affordable rates. Students pay community college tuition for the first three years (in addition to paying for one course per semester at LR). The fourth year at Lenoir-Rhyne will be at Life Long Learning tuition rates. Financial aid is also available for those students who need additional assistance. Please contact the Admissions Office at your choice of community colleges for specific financial aid information.
