All applicable ECPI University nursing and health science programs prepare students to obtain professional licensure or certification in the states of Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee (nursing only), Texas, and Virginia. For all other states, please contact the applicable licensure board (listed below) to request information and additional guidance before beginning or continuing a program that leads to licensure. ECPI University cannot determine at this time if our programs meet the licensing or certification requirements in states other than the ones listed above. Requirements often vary by state and are subject to change. It is the responsibility of the student to understand eligibility for licensure or certification in the appropriate state.
