- Western Michigan University offers two nursing programs—a professional nursing training program leading to a BSN as well as an RN to BSN progression path. Both programs incorporate knowledge from liberal arts, sciences along with the discipline of nursing, and are built to prepare nurse generalists who fully grasp the subject along with the profession of nursing and also who are competent to provide, coordinate and also assess patient care in the many social frameworks in which health care is delivered.
- The Western Michigan University Bronson School of Nursing is endorsed by the Michigan Board of Nursing and also certified by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. The nursing school also has received approval from the American Holistic Nursing Certification Corporation, meaning that upon successfully completing the training program, you will be exempt from prerequisites should you decide to sit for the National Certification Exam in Holistic Nursing.
