LPN to RN Programs in Michigan

There is an ongoing debate in legislation of a required baccalaureate in nursing continues. However, it cannot be denied that a bachelor’s of science in nursing provide nurses with support to advance their knowledge and provide them with career mobility. This will give them a sense of confidence that is needed to take control of new advances in medical technology. The classes are designed to build on existing knowledge in areas such as:
  • Humanities
  • Nursing leadership
  • Nursing management
  • Health promotion and disease promotion
  • Advanced health assessment
  • Nursing research

 

Michigan RN Licensing Requirements

RN Licensure by Exam

Before the candidate can register for the NCLEX exam, he/she will need to apply to the Michigan board for permission. The candidate will also need to register with Pearson VUE. When both steps have been completed, the candidate will receive an authorization to test. A candidate from the United States is expected to make the first attempt at the exam within two years after graduation and pass the exam within a year on the first attempt. If the candidate has not passed the exam within three attempts, a review course will be required. If, after six attempts, that candidate has not passed the exam, he/she will not longer be eligible for licensure in the state of Michigan. In addition to the exam, candidates are required to be fingerprinted. There is a $54 payment that should be attached with the application.

RN Licensure by Endorsement

If a nurse is registered in one of the other 50 states, he/she may be granted a provisional license after the board receives license verification in good standing in another state. There may be additional materials that need to be submitted before permanent licensure can be issued. The application costs $54 but $64 if a provisional license is required.

RN License for Nurses Educated Abroad

International trained registered nurses can obtain licensure as long as they hold certification through CGFNS. Verification should be sent directly by the issuing agency. This may not apply to applicants who completed their nursing program in Canada. Registered nurses from Canada are able to work under a temporary license while they are working on meeting the NCLEX requirement.
