Nursing programs at GRCC
Our Nursing program provides students with learning opportunities that enable them to attain licensure as a Registered Nurse or Practical Nurse, and empowers them to succeed in a changing healthcare environment.
This program is designed to provide the credits necessary for eligibility for practical nursing licensure, registered nursing licensure and transferability for a bachelor's degree in nursing.
GRCCs Nursing Programs prepare individuals to take the program’s corresponding NCLEX exam in the state of Michigan, upon program completion. Graduates who wish to practice nursing in other states should review the licensure requirements for each state through their individual Boards of Nursing.
