Prospective Students

Welcome, prospective students! As a student in the University of Michigan School of Nursing, you begin nursing courses in your freshman year (or sophomore year, for sophomore transfers) and are challenged throughout your education to understand the evidence and theory on which nursing care is based. 
  • We have a unique model of clinical education and close relationships with the nationally recognized University of Michigan Health System (UMHS) as well as other health systems that provide solid clinical experiences.
  • Our faculty members are respected leaders in their fields and conduct research, publish findings, and present at national and international conferences.
  • In addition to learning from these scholars in a classroom setting, students have the opportunity to work side-by-side with faculty who are clinical experts, at home in Michigan or all around the world
  • Our graduates are prepared for a wide range of positions and specialties in healthcare.

The University of Michigan is a large community, but the School of Nursing is not. We are a small, close-knit and diverse community of students and faculty within the larger University of Michigan environment. Students experience all the advantages of a small school coupled with the rich resources of a large university.
