Macomb Community College has received a $12,000 grant from the Metro Health Foundation that will be used to provide six $2,000 scholarships for nursing students at the college.

The Metro Health Foundation Nursing Scholarship is for students enrolled in Macomb Community College’s nursing program who maintain at least a 3.0 grade-point average, demonstrate a need for financial aid and successfully follow the prescribed nursing program curriculum each term while receiving the scholarship. The award of up to $2,000 per academic year can be used for tuition, fees and educational materials.

Macomb’s nursing program, a selective admission program, prepares students for National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) exams and a career as a registered nurse.  A downloadable brochure about the program is available here.
