The concert is part of a week-long residency.
Northern Michigan University students, regardless of major, and Upper Peninsula high school students are invited to participate in the 11th annual New Business Venture Competition sponsored by the NMU College of Business. Individual students or teams of up to five can compete for a $5,000 cash prize and an additional $5,000 in business support. There is a guaranteed prize of $500 for the best high school idea.
The first step is to submit an electronic “Intent to Compete” form and business proposal by 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27. A committee of faculty and staff members will screen submissions and choose finalists to proceed to the second stage, which calls for a detailed business plan that abides by the guidelines and is submitted by Friday, March 2. A small stipend is available for participants to help offset the costs of developing the plan.
The competition takes place on Thursday, March 29. Finalists will participate in three activities at NMU: a trade fair where they can display prototypes of their products and provide supporting information; a presentation to the judges at the trade fair; and a five-minute pitch to the judges in a “Shark Tank”-type atmosphere using props or electronic media. The winners will be announced afterward.

Northern Michigan University will launch a fully online version of its accredited academic program that enables registered nurses to enhance their career goals by earning a bachelor's degree. The RN to BSN program will combine interactive online nursing coursework with project-based clinical nursing instruction and courses from NMU's applied workplace leadership major. Scheduled to begin as a pilot in January, the online program will be structured so that licensed RNs can study either part time or full time around work and family schedules.
“Most students return for a BSN either to seek leadership positions, or as a stepping stone to graduate programs such as NMU's Doctor of Nursing Practice program,” said Katie Menard, associate professor of nursing at NMU. “Also, a growing number of employers are requiring a bachelor of science in nursing because the field has become increasingly complex, challenging nurses' knowledge, technical competence and interpersonal skills. Completing the RN to BSN will make nurses more marketable in the workforce.”
Menard said Northern's RN to BSN program offers accessibility to local individualized attention, schedule flexibility and competitive cost. The RN adviser can review unofficial transcripts at no cost and work closely with students in advance to determine a plan of study. Courses will be offered in accelerated eight-week blocks, allowing students to focus intensively on content over a shorter period.
“We are making the BSN degree more directly applicable to the work setting,” said Kristi Robinia, NMU nursing professor. “Students will enhance their skills in implementing evidence-based practices and updating workplace policy. They will also advance their knowledge of global health and effective management principles. And because NMU's School of Nursing honors the Michigan Transfer Agreement, students can fulfill their general education requirements through transfer credits. We won't make them jump through unnecessary hoops that require more time and money.”
The RN to BSN online program can be completed in as little as four semesters, depending on the number of transfer credits accepted and the number of credits carried each semester. It has been fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing and Education.
