The Pre-Licensure BSN program can be completed in two calendar years. With year-round course sequencing, the program has a strong clinical focus and prepares graduates to provide nursing care for patients across the lifespan in a variety of health care settings. By directly engaging the ever-changing healthcare system, nursing students gain exciting and valuable first-hand experience with patients and other health care team members.
The Pre-Licensure BSN program small cohort sizes allow for personal contact with highly experienced clinicians and the infusion of innovative learner-centered teaching strategies in the classroom, laboratory, and clinical settings. Across the curriculum, nursing students experience real-to-life patient experiences through small group collaboration, problem-solving discussions, simulated patient experiences, hands-on skill development, and much more.
This program prepares graduates to take the NCLEX exam in the State of Michigan. Graduates who want to practice in other states should review those requirements via that Board of Nursing link.
