* The nursing program is currently pending HLC approval.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that nursing jobs will increase by six percent in the next decade. Be prepared to meet the nursing needs of tomorrow with a degree in nursing. Tech’s program prepares you to obtain an official nursing license through the state of Michigan. You’ll graduate with the theoretical knowledge and practical experience needed to meet personal needs as a mature, adaptable member within the nursing profession in a variety of healthcare settings.
Prepare for the NCLEX exam, which provides graduates with their official nursing license. Use cutting-edge technology in the lab like HAL Simulations and an Anatomage Table. Apply your knowledge and gain experience with direct patient care by working 180 clinical hours at local hospitals and healthcare facilities. Join the Michigan Tech Emergency Medical Services. Learn in small classes with professors who know you by name. Plus, receive additional support through your academic family—a tradition where upper level students “adopt” incoming students to offer guidance through their first year of the educational program.
"Most college nursing programs are massive with hundreds of students. The whole program at Tech has only 30 or less individuals, making it super easy to communicate clearly with professors, ask questions, build relationships, and be comfortable with every student and staff in the program. You just simply don’t get that in most colleges now."
Students considering pursuing an academic program that leads to professional licensure are advised that the Michigan Tech Nursing program prepares students to practice in the state of Michigan and is not intended to prepare students for out-of-state licensure. Michigan Tech has not yet determined whether its curriculum prepares students for licensure in any other state.
Students enrolled in Michigan Tech’s Nursing program seeking to practice outside the state of Michigan are advised to contact the appropriate licensing agency within their home state to seek information and additional guidance before beginning a program outside of their home state. Graduates who want to practice in other states should also review those requirements via the NCSBN website.
