Associate Degree in Nursing

Associate Degree (ADN) Program

The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program is offered on the Ohio University Chillicothe, Southern (Ironton) and Zanesville campuses. Applications are campus-specific. For information on the ADN program, please visit the appropriate campus website:

The ADN program has three major categories of required courses:

  • Prerequisites
  • General education requirements
  • Nursing courses

Prerequisite courses include chemistry, biology and algebra at the high school or college level with a grade of “C” or better. Students are required to take the ACT compass placement test in Math, English and Reading. Students must test at the college level or take the required courses. Courses taken at other colleges will be evaluated for transfer credit. If the content is equivalent to the relevant Ohio University course and the earned grade is at least a “C” it may be transferred. Decisions about transfer credit will be made on a case-by-case basis. Students must have a minimum college GPA of 2.75 or better. All transfer GPA’s will be combined for review by the selection committee.

Admission to the ADN program is competitive. Scores on the required standardized test, grades in prerequisite courses, grade point average (GPA), and the individual’s statement of goals are used in making admission decisions. Admission to Ohio University does not guarantee admission to the ADN Program.
