The accredited associate degree nursing program that has been offered in the region for more than 42 years is still a viable option for those who want hands-on clinical experience and hit the ground running as a registered nurse. Now there are three additional routs to enter the nursing profession.
The LPN to RN is a transfer program where licensed practical nurses (LPNs) receive credit for two semesters of nursing by successfully graduating from an approved school of practical nursing and holding a valid LPN license in Ohio.
Following successful completion of Ohio University's nursing transition and bridge courses and the required support courses in year one of the program, the student enters the second year of the
program in an advanced placement option.
Ohio University Zanesville is committed to providing quality registered nurses to meet the needs of community health care institutions. Increasing numbers of health care providers are seeking to hire and promote registered nurses with a bachelor's degree in nursing (BSN).
Ohio University Zanesville is accepting students into bachelor of nursing degree program. The program offers a four-year traditional BSN. In addition, students who already hold a baccalaureate degree in another discipline may choose an accelerated BSN option.
Those interested in any of these options to enter the nursing profession can find out more by attending a free open house on Saturday, April 20, from 9 a.m. to noon, or by contacting the Nursing Office at 740-588-1514.
In order to aid in planning for the open house, those interested are encouraged to RSVP by April 19.
