Nursing is a diverse discipline that affords the opportunity for a challenging and rewarding career. Baccalaureate-prepared nurses are generalists who provide services for patients and their families in hospitals, clinics, businesses, homes, and a variety of other settings. Nursing involves activities related to health promotion and health restoration of individuals who are experiencing illness and/or disabilities throughout the lifespan. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is the entry level professional degree in nursing and provides the foundation for graduate study.
The College of Nursing at Ohio State provides one of the finest baccalaureate programs in the United States and is approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing. Like all baccalaureate programs at Ohio State, the curriculum includes general education (GE) course requirements in foundational skills, the arts, sciences and humanities as well as courses in the nursing science major.
