It is in the news - jobs in nursing are plentiful as we face a national shortage of professionals in the field. Because of an aging population and advances in treatment, the need for more nurses is only expected to increase for the foreseeable future.

Nursing is a profession that requires compassion and caring coupled with medical knowledge, attention to detail, and the drive to help others. It is a demanding career that provides many rewards, both emotionally and financially.

Traditionally seen as a "woman's career," nursing is attracting more and more men. As they enter the field, men join their female counterparts in experiencing the rewarding challenges that come from helping others.

Detailed information on applying for the Nursing Program at Lake Michigan College can be found in the Nursing Brochure (pdf).
