Registered nurse programs
Aspiring registered nurses (RNs) can take either a two-year associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) or a four-year bachelor of science in nursing (BSN). ADN programs are offered at community colleges across the state, while many of Michigan’s four-year institutions offer the BSN program. While an ADN is less expensive, BSN-holders enjoy significantly enhanced pay and a more flexible career trajectory. In aggregate, Michigan’s 90,000 RNs enjoy a median annual salary of over $65,000.

Graduate programs
Existing RNs can gain licensure as advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) by completing a master’s degree program in a specialized field. Michigan’s APRNs enjoy significantly higher pay than traditional nurses. For example, the state’s nurse practitioners earn a median annual salary of $88,760, and its nurse midwives average almost $100,000 in annual compensation. Nurse anesthetists make an impressive $170,000 per year.
