Upon graduation, our students are eligible to sit for licensure by taking the NCLEX-RN exam.

MMCC students average 80%-90% pass rates on this test.

Selective Admissions Means No Wait List

In 2010, MMCC transitioned from a wait list-based nursing program to selective admissions. The college welcomes 96 nurses each year (48 per cohort), based on the strength of their applications to the program. Learn more about our selective admissions process.

Save on BSN Pre-Requisites & Transfer to Complete

Mid offers a pathway for those pursuing an Associate Degree in Nursing to complete additional courses at a significant savings and in a familiar environment as they prepare to transfer. Students then complete a bachelor of nursing degree at the four-year university of their choice. Future nurses working toward this goal often complete their associate degree, enter the workforce, and take advantage of employer tuition reimbursement to complete their bachelor degree. Check out transfer guides to universities across the State.
