Nursing - ADN Completion Program

Nursing training exerciseCompleted your LPN and ready to take the next step? NMC’s associate degree in nursing completion program for LPNs allows those with current clinical work experience in acute or extended care or who have graduated within three years to complete the nursing course work in two semesters.

NMC’s program is approved by the Michigan Board of Nursing. Graduates are eligible to apply for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) for licensing as a registered nurse.

Career opportunities

 Employment of registered nurses is expected to grow by 22 percent from 2008 to 2018, much faster than the average for all occupations. Growth will be driven by a larger elderly population; technological advances in patient care, which permit a greater number of health problems to be treated; and an increasing emphasis on preventive care.

Employment of RNs will not grow at the same rate in every industry.  The projected growth rates for RNs in the industries with the highest employment of these workers are:

Median annual earnings of registered nurses were $65,745 in the State of Michigan in May of 2010. Some places nurses worked and their average annual earnings include:

  • General medical and surgical hospitals – $68,610
  • Home health care services – $63,850
