Program Description:

The nursing program, which leads to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree, is designed to meet students’ individual needs. One program option is available for registered nurses who want to earn a B.S.N. degree and is an on-line program. An honors program is available for students with superior academic ability.

The professional nurse is increasingly being viewed as the nucleus of the health care system, as well as serving as an advocate for health care consumers. Therefore, Wright State’s program prepares self-directed graduates who can function as generalists in a number of settings and work in collaboration with other health professionals to coordinate and improve the health care of individuals, families, and communities.

The nursing program at Wright State is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing.

The College of Nursing and Health faculty reserves the right to revise the nursing requirements or the sequence at any time, as deemed necessary to prepare students for new and emerging roles in nursing. Course requirements or sequence scheduling may also be changed.

Students may be required to come to campus for orientation, advising, or other obligations.
