Registered Nurses picture    Registered Nurses image

A registered nurse, or RN, is a licensed medical professional who provides critical treatment and care to sick and injured patients. Specialty can determine where an RN works. Most registered nurses work with patients in hospitals, but some work in nursing care facilities, government agencies and educational services.

Registered Nursing Schools in Michigan

There are typically three educational paths to becoming a registered nurse--an associate degree in nursing (ADN), bachelor of science degree in nursing (BSN) and diploma from a nursing program. Many schools also have accelerated BSN programs for those who already have a bachelor's degree in another field, but want to switch to a career in nursing. As a registered nursing student, you can expect to have both classroom education and hands-on clinical experience. Registered nursing programs usually offer courses in health law and ethics, emergency medicine, anatomy, behavioral sciences and human physiology. Many Michigan RN schools have online and campus-based options to help you earn an associate's or bachelor's degree in nursing. Once you've earned your diploma or degree from an approved nursing program, you'll need to pass the National Council Licensure Exam, or NCLEX-RN. Additional requirements may be necessary depending on your state. Registered nursing schools in Michigan can provide the education and training you need to become an RN.
