Serving Patients Through a Rewarding Career
Nurses make informed judgments every day about the health of patients of all ages in all sorts of settings – hospitals, primary care practices, home care – you name it. UM-Flint provides the training students need to become nurses, including how to be a nurse in home or community agencies, ambulatory care and a variety of hospital-based practices.
In our Traditional BSN program, students develop critical thinking skills for clinical decision making, learn to collaborate in interprofessional teams, shift focus from care of individuals within a community to the health of a community, refine professional communication, and develop leadership skills.
Students are exposed to leadership courses and nursing skills development courses, as well as classes that cover cultural competency and information technology. You’ll also learn about therapeutic communications, pharmacotherapy, complex health conditions, and your future role as a caregiver. And finally, before you graduate, you’ll get real-world experience through clinical work and practicums guided by our highly qualified faculty.
