(Programs as of Fall 2018)

Demand has exceeded our capacity to accommodate students and programs. As a result, we are unable to accept all of the qualified applicants for our health sciences programs, or to offer the full range of innovative and specialized programs to meet the changing needs of health care in our community.

We need more space for students. Grand Valley is the leading provider of health care professionals in West Michigan, with a long-standing commitment to this community. To fill the talent pipeline in health care, we need more laboratory, classroom, and collaborative workspaces. This will allow Grand Valley to continue to attract highly talented students and future health care professionals to our region. Our unique, interprofessional health education will ensure that these students are ready to fill the interdisciplinary team positions that are in such high demand in today’s health care industry.

We need to help fill new types of positions. As we talk to employers who are looking to the future of the nursing and health professions fields, we are projecting the need to add additional programs. These will include innovative and specialized new fields.
