The University of Michigan-Flint School of Nursing RN to BSN Program is designed for the student who is a graduate of a state-approved nursing program and already holds a license to practice as a Registered Nurse in the United States.


Prospective students must file an application to the University through the University of Michigan-Flint Office of Undergraduate Admissions http://www.umflint.edu/admissions. Official copies of transcripts must be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Proof of Registered Nurse (RN) licensure in the United States must be validated in order to progress into select nursing courses and complete all degree requirements. The University of Michigan-Flint has a revolving admission policy, which allows prospective students to be admitted in Fall, Winter, Spring or Summer. Before applying, out-of-state students, or those who may relocate during the program, should contact the School of Nursing to confirm that the University of Michigan-Flint is authorized to offer distance education in the student’s state of residence. The School of Nursing, in conjunction with the Office of Extended Learning, will determine the University’s status in that state.
