We are pleased to offer this academic practice partnership between Lawrence Technological University (LTU) and Ascension Michigan for a Bachelor in Science (BSN) degree in nursing. Once admitted, you will be joining the profession of nursing, which has been ranked the “most honest and ethical” profession for seventeen consecutive years. As an associate of Ascension Michigan since 1981 and a professor in higher learning since 1988, I am extremely blessed to part of this partnership and profession. As the nursing program grows, I will continue to be clinically active, as an acute care nurse practitioner, to ensure you are provided with the most current, relevant, and state of the art nursing program.
The program at LTU-Ascension is competitive and unique for several reasons. One, it is competitive with its 125 credit plan of study; yet unique in that the program is offered in 11 consecutive semesters, which allows students to obtain a BSN in four years, not five. Unlike many other universities, the program has nursing classes that start in the first semester. The academic practice partnership is also unique in the Detroit Tri-County area showcasing the partnership’s commitment to excellence in education and improvement in health outcomes. Clinical experiences will range from prevention and primary care to high acuity settings across six Ascension hospitals and outpatient settings. You will have access to two nursing simulation labs, one on the LTU campus and the other at Ascension Providence Hospital, Southfield campus.
We wish you all the very best as you review our webpage, attend open houses, as well as communicate with staff, faculty, and administrators.
With highest regards,
Director of Nursing/Professor of Nursing
