I was hesitant to continue my nursing education after completing the rigorous ADN program, yet I’m glad that I continued while I was still in study mode. My familiarity with MCC staff, the close proximity of the college, and the affordability of the program were paramount in my decision to choose MCC. Getting my BSN was important for me in advancing my knowledge and career in nursing.  The field of nursing has a wide range of opportunities and having my BSN makes my career goals more attainable.

“EMCH has received great benefit from the RN to BSN program. We have had four nurses that completed their BSN through this program. Two of the nurses assumed a leadership position and one of the RNs would not have been able assume the leadership position without the BSN.  In addition, the program assists nurses to get a greater understanding of nursing and healthcare, which is of great benefit to nurses in any position within the profession. I would highly encourage any nurse to attend this program!”

I had such a great experience at MCC when I got my Associate’s degree, and I felt totally comfortable going back for my Bachelor’s with MCC. It seemed like perfect timing for me, and the fact that the program was right here in my town with a school I am familiar with gave me the comfort and confidence to go back to school.”
