1 Revised May 2016

2 As a Registered Nurse (RN), you will provide primary care to clients of all ages in a variety of healthcare settings including hospitals, clinics, offices, nursing homes, home health care settings, schools, research facilities, or community agencies. You will be responsible for developing, implementing, and evaluating a plan of care for clients and assisting them in achieving their health goals through effective communication, decision-making, problemsolving, management, and technical skills. When providing direct patient care, you will observe, assess, and record symptoms, reactions, and progress; assist physicians during treatments and examinations; administer medications; and assist in health promotion, convalescence, and rehabilitation. The Associate in Applied Science Nursing Program is approved by the Michigan Board of Nursing and is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, GA The ACEN phone number is The web site is This agency is a resource for information about length of programs and required tuition and fees. VERY!! If a student wants to get their bachelors or masters degree, most programs (and the military) require that the student graduated from a program accredited by ACEN or CCNE. The Lake Michigan College Nursing program has agreements with several institutions that will allow graduates to complete the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree in 2 years or less following graduation from LMC. Lake Michigan College has agreements with University of Michigan-Flint, Bethel College, Chamberlain College, Western Michigan University, and Siena Heights. YES. We have 100% placement rates following graduation for those students who desire nursing jobs. Nursing Program Director Kathleen Szymanski, MSN, RN would be happy to hear from you to answer your questions and help you get started.

3 Learn about the program Obtain and read entire Nursing Program brochure (can be found at lakemichigancollege.edu/nursing) Contact an academic advisor to discuss Nursing Program requirements Complete an LMC application for admission (lakemichigancollege.edu/apply) Have high school transcripts sent to LMC Records Office OR If you have taken prior college courses, have official college transcripts sent to LMC Records Office Have ACT scores sent to LMC and/or take Compass Assessment to meet basic college requirements in reading, English, and math Complete Ranking Courses with a C or better (LMC Overall GPA must be 2.5 or greater) *CHEM 104 *BIOL 205 (BIOL 101 or comparable is a prerequisite for BIOL 205) *MATH 122 or 123 Apply to the program **Take and pass HESI A2 exam (Study materials found at lakemichigancollege.edu/assessment) (Recommended) Submit Pre-Health Science Candidacy Audit to LMC Records Office by November 7 prior to desired year of program entry (found at lakemichigancollege.edu/forms) Successfully complete all paperwork, testing, and coursework prior to May 12 in desired year of program entry Submit Pre-Health Science Candidacy Application to LMC Health Science Department Office by May 12 in desired year of program entry *All courses must be passed with a C or better and within 10 years of Nursing Program application deadline. **Must successfully pass exam within two attempts. 3

4 Following Candidacy List placement, the student will receive a letter indicating whether their ranking was sufficient to be placed in the RN program. Students who are not accepted into the Nursing Program will be required to submit another Application for Health Science Candidacy if Candidacy List placement is desired for the next academic year. Students must inform Lake Michigan College of changes in address or telephone numbers. If the School of Nursing is unable to contact a student related to placement, a student may have to forgo placement that year after reasonable attempts have been made to contact the student. NO. If the student does not get in this year, he/she may apply again for placement next year. The student may use that year to complete courses or gain work experience that may improve their application for admission. Once a student is placed on the candidacy list, students will be selected based upon a competitive process that ranks them according to their GPA in the pre-requisite courses (Math 122 or 123, Biol 205, Chem 104), overall LMC GPA, and HESI A2 score. Other factors that may improve a students ranking are: Completion of all ranking courses at Lake Michigan College Only taking ranking courses once in the past 10 years prior to application to the program Proof of direct patient care work experience, certification in a healthcare field, or completion of the Professional Health Careers Academy Previously earned Bachelor s Degree or higher NOTE: Although completion of BIOL 206 and ENGL 101 are not required for placement on the Candidacy List nor included in the ranking GPA, these courses must be completed prior to entering the first semester of the nursing program. These courses may be completed during the Summer term prior to starting the Nursing courses in the Fall term, but they cannot be taken concurrently with nursing courses. NO. This placement system is a meritbased system. Students on the candidacy list are placed according to their ranking in descending order until the class is full. Students are allowed to retake courses at LMC to improve their grade. So if a student has two Cs in the sciences and are not ranked high enough for placement this year, they may take those courses over to improve the grade and thus increase their chances for placement the following year. Students may also gain direct patient care work experience to improve their application for the next year and overall success in the nursing program. Classroom space limitations, limited faculty resources, state regulation related to clinical placement, limited clinical sites are factors that reduce the number of students in the RN Program. 4

5 BIOL 101 Biological Science (or comparable prerequisite for BIOL 205) 4 5 CHEM 104 Fundamentals of General, 4 6 Organic, & Biochemistry (Note: CHEM 105 Fund. of Inorganic Chem., if taken prior to Fall 2010, may be substituted for CHEM 104 requirement. CHEM 111 or a transfer equivalent may also be substituted for CHEM 104) BIOL 205 Human Anatomy 4 5 MATH 122 Intermediate Algebra or MATH 123 Quantitative Reasoning 4 4 BIOL 206 Human Physiology 4 6 ENGL 101 English Composition 3 3 On rare occasions, students can take prerequisite courses during high school and qualify for placement in the fall following high school graduation. However, this is not recommended due to the fact that we also encourage completion of some of the general education courses before entry. This gives the student more time to focus on the rigorous Nursing program curriculum once admitted. Current Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) may apply for advanced standing in the Nursing Program. LPN to RN students can receive credit for most of the first year nursing courses based upon LPN licensure. Most advanced standing, LPN to RN students, are admitted into second year fall nursing classes. All advanced standing students must meet the admission requirements for the Nursing Program and complete the same core curriculum for graduation. After program completion, Advanced Standing students will earn an Associate Degree in Applied Science and be eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN (RN Licensure Examination). NO. Although we try to place all students who want entry, space availability is a factor that might prevent a student from entering the RN program any given year. 5

The successful RN program student starts in the fall of year 1 and then finishes in early May of year 2. Humanities/Fine Arts Course (any 3 credits of ART, DRAM, ENGL (200-level), FORL, HUMN, MUSI, or PHIL) 3 3 NURS 280 Community Mental Health NURS 281 Medical-Surgical Nursing III NURS 282 Medical-Surgical Nursing IV Semester Total HIST 201 or 202 US History or POSC 101 or 102 U.S. or State 3 3 Government NURS 285 Children s Health NURS 286 Medical-Surgical Nursing V NURS 287 Medical-Surgical Nursing VI NURS 288 Current Issues in Nursing 1 1 Semester Total HEAL 103 Medical Terminology, MATH 216 Intro to Statistics, PSYC 203 Human Development, BIOL 210 Microbiology Both degrees are considered entry level for professional Registered Nurses. Both groups of students take the same state board examination. Both graduate with what is considered a generalist registered nurse education. In this community, both groups of new graduates are given basically the same clinical opportunities. Later, after the graduate has experience, the BS degree pays off with more opportunity for management placement. There are some jobs that require the BS degree. Most healthcare institutions will assist with tuition reimbursement for a BSN degree after employment. Completing the AAS degree and then continuing on for a RN-BSN degree has many financial benefits for students as you can work as an RN and earn money while completing your BSN degree. 6

7 See class schedule for current rates. Total tuition and fees are as follows for the program (does not include pre-requisite classes): ($143/contact hr) ($196/contact hr) $6, $9, $7, $9, Approximately $110 Your own. Strongly recommended. Approx. $1,100 first semester (most books purchased in the first semester are used throughout the program), less each following semester. Approximately $150 Costs include: White duty shoes (all white) & socks or stockings, stethoscope, watch with second hand, bandage scissors, warm-up jacket, name badge (purchased first week of class for $3.00 or during nursing orientation sessions). Transportation to and from clinical facilities (carpooling is not always possible), both for clinical appointments and the day previous to prepare for clinical; achievement tests during the last semester total approx. $50; graduation nursing program pin (optional) $40-$200; NCLEX exam fees approximately $300; graduation fee $50. Please note that, except for tuition, the above costs are only those related to the Nursing program. There are also books and supplies to purchase for general education courses. Many students have additional expenses, such as NCLEX review courses prior to taking the NCLEX exams. Travel costs are not included. Tuition, fees, and other expenses subject to change without notice. 7

8 Applicants to the Nursing programs should be aware that the Michigan Board of Nursing, in its Practice Act, states that it can deny a license to an applicant if any of the following are true: 1. Has been convicted of a criminal offense in a court of competent jurisdiction. 2. Is habitually intemperate in the use of alcoholic beverages. 3. Is addicted to, or has improperly obtained, possessed, used or distributed habit-forming drugs or narcotics. 4. Is guilty of dishonesty or unethical conduct. 5. Has violated or aided or abetted others in violation of any provision of this act. 6. Is less than 18 years of age (Indiana State Board of Nursing does not have this age stipulation). The Michigan Board of Nursing requires a criminal background check prior to licensure. The state board has identified mandatory criminal record exclusions related to licensure. If you have been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor, you may be unable to be licensed. If you have questions about your particular situation, please call the Board of Nursing at All nursing students are required to pass a criminal background check and a urine drug screen for admission into the program. Students are responsible for paying the non-refundable cost of the background search and drug screen. If a criminal record is found, the student may be asked to forfeit their seat in the nursing program. A background check and negative drug screen is required for nursing program admission and re-admission. In order to be in compliance with the policies of our clinical site partners, the Lake Michigan College Nursing Program will not allow a student into the program with a drug screen that is positive for marijuana, even if the student is in the legal possession of a medical marijuana card. The Nursing programs are highly technical programs and deal with the safety of patients admitted to local hospitals and nursing homes. For this reason, the Nursing student is subject to many rules not required of other College students. Most of these rules are listed in the Student Handbook. A copy of the handbook may be obtained from the Health Science Department, and will be given to accepted students at nursing program orientation. CPR certification/recertification (BCLS/AED) is required and should be obtained before beginning the program. Heart Saver and Race for Life are not acceptable. CPR must be completed before the start of first semester for first year students and before the start of first semester for second year students. All students must hold current CPR certification to participate at clinical locations. CPR classes may be taken at LMC. See: for details. All Nursing students are required to have a physical exam completed prior to beginning Nursing Program classes. This is best accomplished in the summer just before classes begin. 8

9 As part of this physical exam, it is essential to provide proof of freedom from communicable diseases. Specific vaccinations must be done or proof of antibody titer immunity provided for the following: MMR (Measles, Mumps & Rubella) Tdap (Tetanus, Diptheria, Pertussis) Varicella Hepatitis B vaccination (Injection series) Proof of freedom from Tuberculosis Flu All Nursing students must have their own dependable transportation and dependable baby sitters who can care for children even if they become ill. Attendance rules are strict and are enforced. Children are not allowed in class, labs, at clinical sites, or in the Nursing Education Center. NO. Clinical time at LMC is daytime and evening shift, including the possibility of weekends. We are also using 12 hour shift clinical periods. 9
