Important Note for Prospective Students

Programs delivered through Mount Carmel College of Nursing (MCCN) that require practice experiences must also abide by state and board regulations in the state where the student resides. Students who wish to complete any experience in a state other than Ohio, may need to take additional steps to comply with the requirements of that state before starting a program through the MCCN. We strongly advise ALL current and prospective students to become familiar with their state’s regulations and professional licensing requirements by seeking information, and/or approval with their state boards where they reside or have plans to reside as a practitioner.

Students may be allowed to participate in practice experiences if their professional licensing boards (Nursing) do not regulate out-of-state programs. However, additional requirements may apply to students who will become practitioners in their state upon program completion. Links to state agencies and professional licensure boards can be found under State Authorization and Disclosures by State
