  1. 0
    Hello all! I was talking with a friend of mine who's attending MCI's ADN-RN program. She wills start her pre-req's Oct. 5th. When she's done with the ADN program she wants to go to the ECPI BSN program. She told me you don't need to have atleast 1yr experience but just have your RN. Is this true? I thought you needed to have atleast 6mths to 1yr experience before you could apply. Can someone give me the scoop so I can let her know.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Stephanie!

    Thank you for your interest in ECPI, MCI School of Health Science's Online BSN Program. The current admission requirements are: hold a RN license in the state of practice, GPA in the RN program of 2.5, and have RN experience. There is no set number of hours required to enter the BSN program. However, RN experience is still needed.

    Our curriculum is built for working RN's who want to return to school to finish their bachelor's degree. Because of this, our classes contain assignments and discussions that involve bringing in your RN experience to the class.

    The program is 9 terms (each term is 5 weeks long) and takes 45 weeks of full-time study to complete. If you'd like any other information, or if your friend does, give me a call!
