Mable Engle Nursing Programs

The Mable Engle Nursing Programs (Nursing Program)  comprises one of the four  divisions within the College of Health Professions. The Nursing Programs include MSN, BSN- Completion, Bachelor of Science in Nursing - Pre-licensure (BSN-PL), and Diploma in Practical Nursing (PN). There are currently four locations throughout Michigan for in-seat instruction, as well as online, offering the Nursing curriculum.  The program is offered in Grand Rapids, Warren, Lansing and Midland. The composition of the nursing student body at each location reflects its surrounding community in terms of race and ethnicity.
