Many of the students that come to the nuring school find jobs immediately after school. The nursing school works with Bronson Hospital so many students work and Bronson after they complete school.


Western Michigan University is a challenging school, but it is also one of the best. At Western you get both the fancy name, yet it is one of the cheapest public universities in Michigan.

Also, we have a lot of organizations and activities almost every single day.
