Healthcare is growing. The population is aging. Hospitals are hiring. You could be working.
Everybody knows that nurses are in demand — and the pay is really good, but it takes a special person to be a nurse for the long haul.
You will be employable in almost any community you choose to live in throughout your lifetime if you become a nurse. If you’re looking for a rewarding career helping others, your path might lead you to one or some of these:
Did you know we have an agreement with Saginaw Valley State University? It clears the path for you to complete your Bachelor of Science Nursing (also known as RN to BSN) degree almost entirely on our Roscommon campus.
Our nursing students have first-hand experience with the latest everything in the field because the nursing program includes both classroom study, patient care simulation and supervised clinical practice (actual patient care) in healthcare facilities around the region, including West Branch Regional Medical Center, Mercy Hospital Grayling and Otsego Memorial Hospital, just to name a few.
- Apply for admission to Kirtland. (You can do it quickly and easily online at https://my.kirtland.edu/ics)
- Schedule an appointment with a Nursing Program Academic Advisor by calling 989-275-5000, ext. 280.
- Upon successful completion of the HESI exam and other nursing program admissions requirements, the Health Science Office will contact you to obtain your nursing program application.
Successful completion of any of these options will prepare you to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical and Registered Nurses (NCLEX-PN & NCLEX-RN).
If you’re planning to complete a bachelor’s degree at a four-year school, Kirtland’s PN and ADN degrees will start you on your way.
