We regret that we cannot admit students from all states. Please voice your concerns about these new regulations to your state’s Commission of Higher Education. As a non-profit accredited college offering over 18 years of online graduate education for nurse practitioners, we have struggled with this new regulation. The MUSC College of Nursing is working with University administration to challenge states' requirements in order to provide educational opportunities for all students across the US.
