Curriculum

Advanced standing credit of 30 hours for an associate degree or a diploma in nursing and a registered nurse license are required for admission to the program. We encourage completion of these recommended pre-requisites courses prior to beginning nursing coursework at OSU. If you begin the program while completing pre-requisites, the time to degree completion will be extended.

 

Coursework includes nursing theory, global health, research and community nursing as well as an extensive review of culture, leadership and management principles and current trends and issues in the profession. The program culminates in the capstone course. Two courses (community and leadership/management) have a clinical component in which students complete clinical assignments according to their schedule in appropriate locations of their choice.
