NMU to offer nursing degree online

MARQUETTE — Nursing students pursuing a bachelor’s will no longer have to get up for their 8:00 a.m. class, or any class, for that matter. Instead, they can log on to their computer through NMU’s online RN to BSN program.

Students from the U.P. and parts of Lower Michigan will be able to enroll for classes next semester without being required to come on campus.

“This group of students are generally working adults who have families so attending traditional face–to–face courses is usually fairly difficult so offering this program online will allow them to complete the coursework at time of day that works well with them so we really think this will be more effective in recruiting students rather than the face–to–face format,” said Katie Menard, Associate Professor at the School of Nursing at NMU.

This program will include reduced tuition rates and courses that are paired with applied workplace leadership courses offered through the university.
