Lansing Community College and University of Michigan-Flint announce partnership

LCC and University of Michigan-Flint enter into agreement to expand nursing education in Michigan

LANSING, Mich. - Michigan will produce more new nurses thanks to a partnership signed between Lansing Community College and the University of Michigan–Flint.

The partnership expands on a plan, approved in the state of Michigan’s Fiscal Year 2023 budget, to allow for Bachelor of Nursing (BSN) programs at community college campuses. By collaborating with the University of Michigan-Flint, LCC will now offer seamless opportunities for nurses with associate degrees to complete their BSN while taking courses on LCC’s campus or remotely.
“We are excited about this new partnership with the University of Michigan-Flint,” LCC President Steve Robinson said. “As a former UM-Flint adjunct faculty member, I can see how this opportunity will make the transition for our students seamless as they continue their studies and complete their academic goals in nursing at LCC. This partnership with UM-Flint allows us to continue to provide our students with the high-quality education they deserve.”
LCC will receive funding from the state to administer the program, which will increase the number of nurses with bachelor’s degrees. This, in turn, will help ease the critical nursing shortage plaguing Michigan hospitals and patients.
BSN Nursing education at LCC will be available beginning in 2024.
UM-Flint School of Nursing Dean Cynthia McCurren reflected on LCC and UM-Flint’s long-standing relationship. "As we launch the new initiative, the nursing programs at Lansing Community College and the University of Michigan-Flint will be building on an existing 17-year partnership, predicated on our commitment to our collaborative relationship.”
For over 35 years, the UM-Flint School of Nursing has been providing nursing education, ensuring theoretical and clinical learning experiences are rooted in a student-centered approach and focused on evidence-based and culturally competent care.
“We are motivated by our shared vision to leverage the assets of both of our programs of nursing to ensure ADN/BSN graduates are ready to transform healthcare and promote a culture of health for all," McCurren said.
