The RN student must have a current, unencumbered state license*. No nursing proficiency or placement exams are required for admission. Through RN licensure and prior academic credit, applicants may have earned credit [38 semester credit hours in nursing and 52 semester credit hours in general education] transferred in toward the BSN degree. Priority consideration is given to applicants from ACEN (formerly NLNAC) accredited pre-licensure nursing programs. MCCN will evaluate applicant packages and may consider admission for those from non-ACEN (formerly NLNAC) accredited pre-licensure nursing programs on an individual basis.
PLEASE NOTE: To apply for the Online RN-BSN Program you must be a licensed Registered Nurse (RN)*, with either an associate degree in nursing or diploma in nursing. The program is designed for licensed RNs who want to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN).
* Students attending the program as a dual enrollment option must have an unencumbered state license prior to the last semester of enrollment in the RN-BSN program; licensure is a condition of program completion.
