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. Fifteen (15) credits are awarded upon validation of RN licensure.  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.
