Alpena Community College's nursing program has partnered with multiple four-year higher-ed institutions to help turn more LPNs and RNs into BSNs across the state. Once LPNs from Alpena CC pass their NCLEX-PN exam, they are eligible to begin taking concurrent courses at Davenport University's and EMU's BSN programs. Once RNs from Alpena CC pass their NCLEX-RN exam, they can transfer their credits and enroll in a BSN program at one of these 4-year higher-ed institutions: UM-Flint, Davenport University, EMU, Chamberlain University, Oakland University and SVSU.
