Registered nurses form the largest health care occupation, with 2.5 million jobs. An associate degree is one path to registered nursing. NMC’s program is approved by the Michigan Board of Nursing. Graduates are eligible to apply for the State Board Examination for licensing as a registered nurse.
More than half a million new RN jobs will be created between 2006-16. Overall job opportunities are expected to be excellent due to a nationwide nurse shortage.
