The mission of the MCC Nursing Program is to promote success through educational excellence and to graduate nurses who are able to provide empathetic, evidence-based nursing care to diverse populations.
The Nursing Degree prepares students for entry level positions in nursing and for taking the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). It has been approved by The New Jersey Council of Presidents, and accredited by the New Jersey Board of Nursing and the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
