The Mennonite College of Nursing (MCN) has extended the deadline for students to apply for the graduate program to March 15. Applications are being accepting for the doctoral programs (online post-master’s D.N.P. and Ph.D. in nursing) and the Master of Science in Nursing programs (clinical nurse leader and online nursing Systems Administration).

“We encourage prospective graduate students to contact our office and talk with us about furthering their education,” said Caroline Mallory, professor and graduate program coordinator. “It is not too late to apply, and we are here to help you select the best program for your success.”

MCN has a 95-year history of providing outstanding nursing education. Students can choose a full-time or part-time plan of study, and courses are offered in various formats including online, hybrid, and on campus.

Professor Denise Wilson has taught at MCN for 34 years, and as the college continues to grow she encourages students with their B.S.N.’s to pursue a M.S.N. and students with their M.S.N. to pursue a doctoral degree. “The health care system in which we practice is becoming increasingly complex,” Wilson said. “Illinois State’s MCN graduate programs have a reputation of producing outstanding graduates who are prepared to be nursing leaders and advocates in what can be considered an uncertain environment. Employers and health care consumers alike recognize the quality of our graduates.”
