Online RN-BSN Admissions

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 [42 semester credit hours in nursing and 48 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)*. 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 or are applying as new graduate nurses awaiting licensure may attend the program through provisional admission and are permitted to enroll in general education courses and up to 9 credits of nursing coursework. Active unencumbered licensure is a condition of program completion.
