Special BSN Information Program at the Geauga Campus May 21Posted May. 10, 2013
A special Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Information Program will be held Tuesday, May 21 at 6:00 PM on the Kent State University Geauga Campus in Burton. The Geauga Campus offers both the BSN and the RN to BSN programs. Kent State University's College of Nursing offers one of the most comprehensive programs of study in nursing in Ohio. The college enjoys a reputation for excellent academic performance, clinical knowledge and leadership ability of its students and graduates.
"We recognize that students have many nursing program options here in Northeast Ohio", says Thomas Hoiles, Director of Enrollment Management at the Geauga Campus. "Our BSN options are the only such programs offered by a public university in the Geauga and Lake County region whose reputation for quality nurse education is nationally recognized." According to Hoiles, there are many advantages to pursuing the Geauga experience. He lists convenience, accessibility, and affordability as just some of those advantages. "The cost of attending a Regional Campus is at least 40% less than attending the Kent Campus. Additionally, our students find an academically challenging program like nursing to be more attainable in our supportive environment", says Hoiles.
According to the Institute on Medicine, the future demand for a greater number of baccalaureate degree prepared nurses is a reality. By the year 2020, it is anticipated that 80% of all practicing nurses will have the BSN. The Geauga BSN program is a 3-year program in which admitted students attend classes year-round thus allowing them to complete the typical four-year program in 3 calendar years.
For those registered nurses who wish to transition to the Bachelor's Degree, the program at Geauga will be taught in a hybrid manner. All the required nursing courses will be a blend of on-line and face-to-face classes taught in 7 week terms.
Those interested in learning more about these two BSN options are encouraged to attend the Information Session at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, May 21. For more information, call 440-834-4187.
