A Great Lakes state, Michigan has 2,260 nurse practitioners according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (2012). Nurse practitioners across the nation frequently provide primary care services in rural and medically underserved areas, as well as in family practice, internal medicine, women's health and pediatrics.

Nurse practitioners in Michigan are able to practice relatively autonomously, though they do need a collaborative agreement with a physician to prescribe medications. Michigan nurse practitioners can - and do - receive reimbursement directly from Medicare, Medicaid and a number of private health insurance companies.

There is call across the nation, and in Michigan, for nurses to advance their education and careers, and obtaining your NP degree is one way to do just that. As a Nurse Practitioner in Michigan, you can join a group of nurses earning a mean annual salary of $86,910 (BLS, 2012).

Some Michigan nurses who wish to become nurse practitioners pursue their education online; Georgetown University offers a strictly online NP program. Other Michigan nurses prefer an in-state experience. NP programs for Michigan nurses include:

  • Northern Michigan University. Located in East Lansing, Northern Michigan U offers a master's-level family nurse practitioner program. Courses are primarily delivered online, with on-campus courses scheduled one day per week.
  • University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. The University of Michigan - Ann Arbor offers different master's-level NP programs including: family nurse practitioner, adult nurse practitioner, pediatric nurse practitioner, acute care nurse practitioner and psychiatric/mental health nurse practitioner.

  • Wayne State University. As of November 2001, Wayne State is currently accepting applications for its pediatric nurse practitioner, pysch/mental health nurse practitioner and neonatal nurse practitioner programs.
