Bachelor of Science in Nursing

The traditional (on-campus) Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) major provides the classroom and clinical education needed to prepare graduates for the challenges of complex and changing healthcare systems. Classes are held on Ohio University’s main campus in Athens as well as the regional campuses of Chillicothe, Southern, and Zanesville. Clinical training takes 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.
