“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 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.”
