About

The B.S.N. Nursing Major offered by Ohio University prepares students in the science and principles of nursing to provide care for individuals, families, and populations within complex healthcare systems. 

Overview

The B.S.N. Nursing Major offered by Ohio University includes courses in the sciences, humanities, and human behavior in addition to the nursing courses. Students learn through a combination of classroom, laboratory, and supervised clinical instruction and graduate with the competencies to provide evidence-based practice care as a generalist nurse.  Graduates of the BSN program will be eligible to take the National Council Licensing Exam for registered nurses (NCLEX-RN).

First-Year Admission

Students are not directly admitted to BS1221. Individuals interested in the BSN program should apply to the pre-BSN major (ND1220) and complete specified prerequisite courses required for the BS1221 major.

BSN (BS1221) selection:

Individuals must apply and meet specific School of Nursing requirements in order to be considered for selective admission into the BSN program (BS1221).  Admission to the BS1221 is competitive, and success in the pre-BSN major (ND1220) does not guarantee admission to the BSN program.  A minimum GPA of 2.75 is required for consideration of admission to the BSN major.  Meeting minimum program requirements does not guarantee admission.  Individuals interested in the BSN program major (BS1221) should speak with a School of Nursing academic advisor or refer to the School of Nursing website for additional program information and specific requirements for admission.

Opportunities Upon Graduation

Graduates are eligible to sit for the registered nursing licensing exam (NCLEX-RN) to become licensed RNs.  Upon successful passing of the NCLEX-RN, graduates can be employed in a variety of settings to provide care for individuals, families, and populations within complex healthcare systems. Graduates are prepared to enter master's or doctoral programs in nursing, which prepare baccalaureate registered nurses for advanced nursing roles.
