Program Details

  • One class is a hands-on in-person community clinical experience that helps you apply what you learn in class to an experiential opportunity.

Students interested in this program should check with their Macomb Community College adviser on MTA requirements which include English, Humanities/Fine Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. To satisfy requirements for the BSN Completion program, students must satisfy the MTA at Macomb, and specifically take a Sociology course for one of the two Social Sciences requirements and a Chemistry course for one of the two Sciences requirements.
