RN to BS in Nursing: Hybrid On-site and Online

Registered Nurses: We listened to what you needed. We can help you take your nursing career to the next level with our accelerated on-site and online, hybrid RN to BS in Nursing program. Read more here.

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.

Nursing graduates

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 (CCNE).
