FLINT, Mich. (AP) - (10/20/16) - The University of Michigan is creating a School of Nursing at its Flint campus, effective Nov. 1.
The Flint campus has a department of nursing inside the School of Health Professions and Studies. Nursing now will stand on its own. The university says more than 19 percent of students in Flint study nursing or pre-nursing.
Over 45 years, nearly 3,000 nurses and nurse practitioners have been trained.
The change was approved Thursday by university regents. There are four other schools at Michigan's Flint campus.
