Schoolcraft offers three nursing education options. The first, a certificate program, can generally be completed in one year. It prepares you to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nursing (NCLEX-PN). The second, leading to an associate in applied science degree, qualifies you to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nursing (NCLEX-RN), providing you the academic background you’ll need to enter a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree program. The third option allows licensed practical nurses (LPNs) advanced placement into the associate degree nursing program.
Our nursing programs are approved by the Michigan Board of Nursing and the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC). The programs provide nursing theory and clinical practice in caring for adults, children and families to prepare you for entry-level positions in hospitals, long-term care facilities, medical offices, home health and other community settings.
- Nursing courses must be taken in sequence and a minimum grade of 80% in each nursing course is required for progression to the next course. Academic courses other than nursing must be completed according to program requirements.
- Students are admitted once a year in the fall semester.
The Associate Degree and Practical Nursing programs are approved by the Michigan Board of Nursing and have received Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN) accreditation. Formerly NLNAC, National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, Inc.
