Registered Nursing (RN) Programs in Michigan

The first step in becoming a Registered Nurse in Michigan is to complete an approved nursing education program. You can obtain this goal by getting a 4 year Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree, Associate Degree in Nursing or earning a Nursing diploma.


The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program which most health care providers prefer, generally includes the first two years of general education courses and classes such as anatomy, introduction to psychology, general chemistry and nutrition. The last two years are focused on core-curriculum classes including pharmacology, community health, mental health, clinical leadership, nursing and therapeutics.

The Associates Degree in Nursing takes two years to complete and typically offers the advantage of college level academic and professional instruction in the classroom and clinical areas. The Nursing diploma pathway, which is the least popular option, is obtained by studying nursing for several years while working in a hospital alongside other nurses and under the supervision of a nurse educator.

The nursing field is a great career choice in Michigan as it is one of the strongest industries in the state. In Michigan, Registered Nurses make an average hourly wage of $30.82 and an average annual salary of $64,100. Driven by high demand, pay for Registered Nurses has been steadily increasing over the years and some nurses even report securing a signing bonus from some employers. The benefits of entering a nursing program in Michigan are: job security due to a high demand for Registered Nurses currently and into the future, flexibility which gives Registered Nurses the opportunity to work in numerous facilities such as hospitals, Doctor’s offices, community health clinics, correctional facilities, government agencies and the personal satisfaction of caring for and helping others.

Essential skills needed to become a successful Registered Nurse are being caring, empathetic, showing compassion, the ability to handle stress, maintaining composure under difficult circumstances, great judgment and decision making, critical thinking, detail oriented, excellent communication skills and a pleasant personality. Some responsibilities of a Registered Nurse include evaluating patients, administering medication under the supervision of a doctor, monitoring and tracking vital signs, iv placement, gathering blood work, educating patients and the public on a variety medical conditions, treating patients and assist with rehabilitation, keeping records of symptoms and progress, and providing emotional support to patients and their families.

The two most common types of RN programs are: two-year Associates Degree in Nursing (ADN) and four-year Bachelor Degree in Nursing (BSN).
