What if I don't have my RN ... can I still get my bachelor's
degree in Nursing?
Absolutely! Our Adult Accelerated Nursing program is geared
toward those students with an LPN, an associate or bachelor’s
degree in another discipline, or simply 18-24 credits of
prerequisite classes at the community college level.
How do I get started?
Your first step would be to apply to the college at www.msmc.edu/apply. You need
to send transcripts from every college you have attended. If you
meet the admissions criterion, you will be accepted as an
Interdisciplinary major with a concentration in Nursing. You will
meet with the nursing advisor who will work with you to create an
academic plan that fulfills all pre-requisite requirements for you
to be eligible for the selection process held each April.
Each year in mid-April, students who have completed the seven
prerequisite courses and have a minimum overall GPA of 2.75 will be
considered for a seat in the Nursing major.
The seven pre-requisite classes are:
ENG 1010 – COLLEGE WRITING; BIO 1030 – ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY
I; BIO 1040 – ANATOMY & PHYSICOLOGY II; CHM 1080 – NURSING
CHEMISTRY FUNDAMENTALS; PSY 1010 – GENERAL PSYCHOLOGY; PSY 3050 –
DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY; SOC 1010 – INTRO TO SOCIOLOGY
Applicants must have at least a C in each science course.
Convenient evening schedule
The accelerated program features six start dates per year. Most
courses meet either Monday and Wednesday, or Tuesday and Thursday
from 6:45-9:55 p.m. Clinicals for Nursing courses are held during
the day, and you'll know that schedule well in advance.
The Mount produces highly competent Nursing graduates who are
successful on the nursing boards. Our graduates are employed as
staff nurses, research nurses, and nurse midwives. Following the
completion of a master’s degree, they work as nurse practitioners,
clinical nurse specialists and nurse educators.
The Mount's Nursing program has achieved accreditation from the
prestigious Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education
