Northwestern Michigan College and Davenport University developed a concurrent program to assist with academic progression from the ADN to BSN degree. Students are dual enrolled in both institutions. A financial aid consortium agreement was developed to give students the ability to complete courses at both NMC and Davenport.
Dr. Laura Schmidt, Director of Nursing and Allied Science explained, “If the model schedule is followed, students have the ability to complete their BSN within two full time semesters following graduation from the NMC ADN program. This is a wonderful opportunity for students especially since they must earn their BSN within five years of accepting employment at our local hospital.”
