Jobs for registered nurses are plentiful as we face a national shortage of professionals in the field. Due to an aging population and advances in treatments, the need for more nurses in southwestern Michigan is only expected to increase in the foreseeable future. And a nursing degree from Lake Michigan College is a great start - 100% of LMC nursing graduates find jobs within three months!

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

The associate degree in nursing (ADN) is a stepping stone to the many, diverse career paths that nursing has to offer. With an ADN, you can get a great job as a registered nurse, and earn money while you transfer to a four-year school to pursue a bachelor's degree in nursing (BSN). From there, if you want, you can continue your education with many other advanced degrees elated to clinical practice, management, leadership, and education.

Detailed information on applying for the Nursing Program at Lake Michigan College can be found in the Nursing Brochure (pdf). The deadline to apply to the Fall 2018 Nursing cohort is May 12, 2018 - you can find the Nursing application here (pdf).
