RN to BSN Program Details
To qualify for admission to the RN completion program, applicants
must satisfy University admission requirements as described in the
admission section of the Catalog. For students with college-level
achievement, the opportunity will be offered, by means of examination,
to obtain course credit or placement into an advanced course. Applicants must be graduates of state- or provincial-approved associate’s degree or diploma nursing programs with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.7 in all nursing, nursing support and English courses. Nursing support courses include: chemistry, mathematics, anatomy and physiology, microbiology, statistics, nutrition, pharmacology, pathophysiology, computer applications in health sciences, psychology and sociology courses. Credit may be granted for nutrition and pharmacology upon writing the required NLN tests and achieving scores at the 50th percentile or above. NLN tests may be repeated once; students must enroll in the course if not successful on second writing. Credit by departmental exam is also available to students upon request.
BSN Program Details
Professional nursing blends a unique body of knowledge from the sciences, social sciences and humanities with a compassionate heart and a sensitive spirit to provide holistic care to those in need. The School of Nursing offers two curricular tracks to the bachelor of science degree in nursing; the fouryear, pre-licensure program and the two-year, completion program for the registered nurse. The programs
provide you with the opportunity to acquire knowledge, values and skills necessary for the practice of professional nursing. Course requirements provide liberal backgrounds in physical science, social science and humanities. This curriculum provides a solid basis for the variety of roles in nursing practice. The nursing curriculum provides an interdisciplinary major and, therefore, does not require a minor to meet graduation requirements. These nursing programs are approved by the Michigan Board of Nursing and the BSN program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.*
