School of Nursing
NMU’s School of Nursing prepares students to excel in a variety of hospital and community settings. You will acquire expert knowledge, technical competence and interpersonal skills. Our nursing curriculum is one of the most diverse in the Midwest. Admission into the nursing program is highly competitive, and students are required to apply for acceptance after having successfully completed a series of prerequisite courses, including human anatomy and physiology, chemistry, psychology, sociology, medical microbiology and nutrition.
We place special emphasis on developing critical thinking skills and therapeutic techniques through both classroom and clinical experiences. Most of your classes will be held in the state-of-the-art Nursing Technology Center (NTC), which offers nursing students dozens of specialized labs and enhanced learning environments such as the Pendill Home Care Suite and the Benda-Drake Intensive Care Simulation Room. You’ll also receive hands-on training at local and regional healthcare facilities.
NMU's program boasts one of the best job placement rates in the university with more than 90 percent of graduates finding work in six months of graduation. Along with positions in hospitals, clinics and physician offices, nurses also work in business, occupational, community and home health care settings.
