Kellogg Community College and Olivet College have a BSN articulation agreement. Graduates of Kellogg CC's associate degree in nursing program can seamlessly transfer their credits to Olivet College's RN-BSN program. The purposes of the articulation are to create more BSN-prepared nurses in Michigan, especially in the Battle Creek area, and to allow students in the program to earn their BSN degree locally and remain and practice in the area after graduation. This partnership is vital because the Olivet College program is the only BSN program located in the Battle Creek area.
