OCC and WSU College of Nursing sign agreement

November 4, 2013


Graduates of Oakland Community College's associate's degree program in nursing have a new route to advance their credentials. An agreement with the Wayne State University College of Nursing will ease the transition of OCC alumni into Wayne State's program, allowing them to receive a bachelor's degree in five semesters with classes taken in Oakland County. The agreement allows graduates with an Associate Degree in Nursing from OCC to transition to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Wayne State with minimal duplication of courses. Nancy T. Artinian, interim dean of the Wayne State University College of Nursing, said the college hopes to start enrolling OCC nursing graduates now to start the program in January. "Wayne State University nursing graduates are prized for their leadership, case management and practitioner skills in all areas of the healthcare system," Artinian said. "We are excited to see what this partnership leads to."
