The College of Nursing and Health has several admission requirements in addition to the minimum requirements of the School of Graduate Studies. All prospective students must have:
Current Ohio RN license
Evidence of an unencumbered registered nurse license in Ohio
A baccalaureate degree in nursing from a school of nursing that is accredited by a nationally recognized body for nursing education accreditation. Alternately, the prospective student may be a registered nurse with a bachelor's degree in a traditional discipline other than nursing, which will require selected support and professional nursing bridge courses in addition to regular graduate curriculum requirements.
An overall grade point average in undergraduate work of 3.0, or 2.7 with 3.0 or better in the upper division nursing course work in the major.
Submission of a goal statement
Within five years, complete a statistics course prior to enrollment in NUR 707
Documented expertise in physical/health assessment or completed course.
Minimum TOEFL IBT - 79, Paper based - 550 or IELTS - 6.0 band
Evidence of liability insurance, health insurance, CPR certification, and other necessary health information as required by clinical agencies, prior to clinical courses and practical.
Students may complete the requirements for two concentrations while pursuing a nursing Master's degree. A third program enables the registered nurse student with a bachelor's degree in a traditional discipline outside of nursing to enroll in a bridge program leading to a master's degree. All programs prepare nurses for advanced leadership roles in practice and administration, as well as for doctoral study in nursing. The curriculum offers students the opportunity to select a clinical specialization and role (clinical specialist, nurse practitioner, nurse administrator, or school nurse). Nurses already possessing a master's degree with a major in nursing may earn a second M.S. degree in nursing.
