Prepare to improve lives.

Starting with your own.

Any nurse will tell you it can be a tough and demanding job, but they will also tell you that it’s one of the most rewarding careers you can choose. This is because on a daily basis you’re helping people who need it the most. As a nurse, you’ll be both a caregiver and a problem-solver, someone who helps heal people in mind, body, and spirit. Compassion is critical, but you’ll also need a strong aptitude for science and critical thinking to properly treat patients.

Available Degrees

To qualify for the Nursing program, you must have a high school diploma or equivalent. Due to class size and personalized teaching requirements, program enrollment is limited. You’ll participate in a range of different classroom and hands-on learning experiences that will help you develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to succeed in your nursing career. In addition to the core of nursing-related classes, you’ll also be required to complete classes in both a general education core and an applied science core. Upon graduation, you’ll be eligible to take the state licensing exam, which you must pass to become a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) or Registered Nurse (RN). The Michigan Board of Nurses may deny a license if you’ve been convicted of a crime or are addicted to drugs or alcohol.
