Online RN-BSN Admissions

Applications to the Online RN-BSN Completion Program are due by eight weeks prior to the start of the entering semester. Classes are typically small, which allows for an individualized approach to learning. Both full-time and part-time study are available. To apply for the Online RN-BSN Program, an applicant must be a licensed Registered Nurse (RN) with either an Associate Degree in Nursing or Diploma in Nursing. The Program is designed for licensed RN’s who want to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN).

Applicants to the Online RN-BSN Completion Program must submit the following documents. No nursing proficiency or placement exams are required for admission.

  • A completed Application for Admission (link to the online application).
  • A non-refundable, one-time $30 application fee (payable by credit card online; by check or money order made payable to Mount Carmel College of Nursing or calling the Business Office).
  • A non-refundable $100 processing fee for each application (billed by the Business Office).
  • Official transcripts for all post-secondary academic work. Transcripts must be submitted directly to Mount Carmel College of Nursing, Online RN-BSN Completion Program.
  • A current and unencumbered RN license.
  • Through RN licensure and prior academic credit, applicants may have earned credit transferred toward the BSN degree (38 semester credits in nursing  and 52 semester credits in general education).
  • Priority consideration is given to applicants from ACEN (formerly NLNAC) accredited pre-licensure programs. MCCN will evaluate applicant packages and may consider admission for those from non-ACEN accredited pre-licensure nursing programs on an individual basis.

International Students

Mount Carmel College of Nursing does not issue Immigration Form I-20 from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Therefore, the College is not eligible to accept new or transfer international students who need I-20 credentialing. The College welcomes international applicants who do not require an I-20 clearance.

International transcripts must be evaluated by an international transcript evaluation service. The evaluation must be sent directly from the credentialing service to MCCN.  Click here  for a specific list of accepted National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) members.
