The RN apprenticeship program is a collaboration between West Shore Community College, Michigan Works! West Central, and Corewell Health Ludington. The one-year program expands accessibility to a nursing career for those who would not be able to otherwise stop working to pursue nursing education. Also, the program expedites the time it takes for RNs to become practice-ready. RN apprentices take courses at West Shore CC and receive practical experience with a nurse mentor as paid full-time apprentice at the Corewell Ludington hospital.
