WSU College of Nursing, OCC sign agreement


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 recently signed agreement allows graduates with an Associate’s Degree in Nursing from OCC to transition to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Wayne State with minimal duplication of courses. The agreement is in effect now through June 30, 2016, and subject to review for continuance after three years.
