Welcome to the Wayne County Community College District’s Nursing Department

The Nursing Program at WCCCD has a long history of promoting excellence in the nursing community. Graduates from the program serve throughout the Detroit Metropolitan area and the United States. The Nursing Program is physically located at the Northwest Campus (Health Science Center).

Program Information

Our Associate Degree in Nursing is a 63-credit hour program that combines course work in general and nursing education
courses with clinical experiences in a variety of area facilities. All clinical experiences are supervised by experienced nursing faculty.

Graduates are encouraged to transfer to 4-year universities to complete their bachelor's degree in nursing through our partnerships at the Mary Ellen StempÔ¨āe University Center.

Our Program Is Approved and Accredited

Our graduates are eligible to take the state licensure exam (NCLEX) that, upon successful passage, grants the credential of Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN).

“The mission of the Nursing Program is aligned with the mission of the college. We educate, prepare, and empower student nurses to become competent health professionals who deliver safe patient care in a state-of-the-art health care environment with interdisciplinary teams, and to promote health and wellness to individuals, families, and communities in our culturally diverse society.”


“Wayne County Community College District (WCCCD) is committed to excellence in nursing education on a collegial level that promotes health and wellness to individuals, families and communities in our culturally diverse global society. Our vision is to develop a highly skilled nursing workforce providing compassionate care through academic and career success. “
