More Projects

The Michigan Center for Nursing would like to hear about new initiatives from across the state. We are open to ideas and suggestions for new initiatives from nurses throughout Michigan. MCN is constantly building relationships with new partners in order to enhance the education and practice environments of Michigan’s nursing workforce, which ultimately improves the overall health of our state.

  • Issues related to nursing practice
  • Projects by nurses completing their DNP
