Michigan is one of the most unique states in the nation. It is the 8th most populous state in the country (with nearly 10 million residents) and has the 11th most extensive total land area. But what sets Michigan apart from other states, is its unique geographic position. Michigan is situated among four of the five Great Lakes, plus Saint Clair. In fact, with Lake Michigan bordering on the West and South, Lake Huron and Lake Erie bordering on the East, and Lake Superior bordering on the North, Michigan has the longest freshwater coastline of any political subdivision in the entire world. Additionally, Michigan has over 64,900 inland lakes and ponds. There’s water just about everywhere you go. If you love water then Michigan is the state for you.

Michigan is also a great place to live if you enjoy nature. With all that water, Michigan is one of the greenest states in the nation. It’s home to a diverse selection of freshwater lakes and ponds, extensive forests and scenic flora, various national parks and a myriad of wildlife. There are also several mountain ranges in the west that are very popular among nature lovers. But if nature and the great outdoors isn’t your thing, then you’d probably feel right at home in one of Michigans major metropolitan areas, including the state capital, Lansing, and the largest city and metropolitan area in the state, Detroit.

nursing schools in Michigan

While Michigan’s economy is recovering from a recent recession, the healthcare community in Michigan is still just as vibrant as ever. With nearly 10 million year-round residents there is always demand for health care services, as well as qualified health care professionals, including nurses. While both licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered nurses (RNs) are in high demand, most healthcare employers are looking to higher registered nurses.

To become a nurse in Michigan you must pass a state-administered exam and obtain a diploma or degree in nursing from an accredited program. Earning a nursing diploma will qualify you to become an LPN. To become a registered nurse you much earn an associate’s degree or bachelor’s of science in nursing (BSN) degree. While many students opt for an associate’s degree in nursing because it takes less time to complete, more and more students are now earning the BSN instead. Unlike an associate’s degree, the BSN will qualify you for many more career advancement opportunities and enable you to earn a graduate degree in nursing down the road. Additionally, the BSN is the degree of choice among employers who are looking to hire registered nurses.
