First BSN graduates 2013
May 2013: Ohio University graduates its first
Bachelor of Science in Nursing class


The four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing provides the classroom and clinical education to prepare graduates for the challenges of complex and changing health-care systems. Classes are held on Ohio University’s main campus in Athens, with clinical training taking place at hospitals and clinics in southeast Ohio. Students will need to arrange transportation to some of these sites. Candidates accepted to the program, both freshmen and transfers, enter as pre-BSN majors. During the summer between the first and second years, successful pre-majors are selected to advance to the BSN major. After completing the final three years of the program, student nurses graduate and take a licensing exam.
