OHIO Eastern and Ohio University’s other regional campuses were recently featured in an article by OhioToday. The article highlighted the One OHIO strategic initiative and how, for the first time, the University is operating as a unified university system, leveraging the full power of its network, and cultivating an ecosystem that better serves its students and mission.
The article also examines how OHIO has been tying its academics to the needs of the communities it serves. At OHIO Eastern specifically, with more hospitals wanting a higher accreditation level for nurses and the lack of an in-state Bachelor of Science Nursing program within 25 miles, OHIO has extended it largest academic program to the Eastern campus. This fall, eleven students were admitted into the campus’ new BSN program, complete with new state of the art simulation labs.
“We envision this to be a well-respected program in the region, attracting top quality students who are likely to serve with the community after graduation,” says Fox, associate professor of nursing at Ohio University Eastern. “In the field of nursing, opportunities on the job, in advance practice, in research and more are significantly greater with a bachelor’s degree.”
