MAGELIN: Master's Graduate Entry-Level into Nursing (formerly known as MN) is for individuals with a non-nursing baccalaureate degree who want to enter the nursing profession.
MAGELIN graduates work in clinical areas, leadership roles, or they pursue an advanced practice degree in nursing.
MAGELIN is a 15 month accelerated pre-licensure MSN degree program that can be completed in four consecutive semesters.
As part of the Mount's MSN degree program, MAGELIN is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), One DuPont Circle NW, Suite 530, Washington DC, 20036, 202-887-6791.
Students in the MAGELIN program use the nursing lab and stimulation center to practice their skills that are transformed to the clinical area. Students engage with highly qualified faculty who are dedicated to preparing future nurses for the dynamic health care environment. The MAGELIN program prepares the student at a higher level than the BSN program, by offering courses that emphasize research, evidence-based practice, clinical reasoning, and theoretical perspectives in nursing.
Upon completion of the program, students apply and take the NCLEX-RN to become licensed to practice as an RN. This program began in 2004 and as of 2011 it has achieved a five year NCLEX-RN pass rate of 99.3%
