Like many other states, Michigan is preparing for retiring “baby-boomer” who will need substantial medical care. Specialized nursing skills will be in an high demand over the next twenty to thirty years, and community colleges are expect to supply the majority of registered nurses to their respected communities.

WSCC offers several exciting health career programs such as: Registered Nurse (RN), Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), Nurse Assistant certificate, Respiratory Care Technician, and Radiologic Technician. All of these practitioners are expected to be in high demand for many years to come.

WSCC degrees/certificates prepare students to face the many challenges of the modern world. WSCC offers extensive training to all its graduates to assure they are both knowledgeable and confident when faced with an emergency.

Educational institutions like WSCC continue to supply communities in Michigan with highly trained emergency responders.
