Northwestern Michigan College is partnering with Davenport University and Munson Healthcare to offer a fast-track BSN degree program. The program was created to increase Michigan's nursing workforce by giving nursing students at NMC a faster, less expensive path to earn a BSN. Students are enrolled for two years at NMC and take a third year at Davenport University, so the BSN program only takes 3 years to complete. Davenport University will offer an in-person course option for BSN students as well as an online option with local support in Traverse City. Students will complete their clinicals at Munson Healthcare, with the potential of being hired at the end of the program.
