Nursing:  Professional Licensure Disclosure

The University of Mount Olive’s (UMO’s) AS in General Studies (Pre-Nursing), BS Nursing (Prelicensure BSN), Registered Nurse (RN) to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program and the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree tracks: (a) Nursing Education, (b) Nursing Administration, and (c) the dual concentration in Nursing Education and Nursing Administration, do not require approval by the North Carolina (NC) Board of Nursing (BON). All of the students enrolled in our RN to BSN or MSN degree programs already hold active, unencumbered RN licenses that the state of NC will recognize through the Enhanced Nursing Licensure Compact (eNLC), which facilitates the mobility of RNs among the states.

The spreadsheet provided identifies other states who are also eNLC participants, and outlines UMO’s determination of whether our program meets the State educational requirements for licensure or certification in the state listed.

Yes= meets state educational requirements for licensure or certification,

No= does not meet state educational requirements for licensure or certification, or

No Determination= a determination has not been made.

Although there may be additional requirements applicable to individual states, the eNLC agreement makes it possible for individuals who have completed an approved pre-licensure nursing program to obtain a RN license in another participating state, which guarantees full licensure with any eNLC state.
