Nursing

Nursing is the largest healthcare occupation and is near the top of the list when it comes to employment growth. Government statistics predict a greater than 16% increase in jobs over the next 10 years.

Our nursing program is a two-year program whose graduates earn their Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN). In fact, it's one of the best programs in Ohio.

Did you know our ADN students take the same licensing exam as students who earn their bachelor's in nursing? That's right, when you successfully complete our 2-year program, you will take the very same test to become a registered nurse as those students who graduate from a four-year school. And you'll do it at a fraction of the cost.

However, if you decide your ultimate goal is a bachelor's degree, Washington State is still the smart place to start. You can earn your ADN at one of the lowest tuition rates in the state, then transfer for continued studies toward a baccalaureate degree or advanced practice nursing.

Admission

Admission to the ADN Program is awarded on a selective basis, with preference given to the most qualified candidates. You will need to complete all requirements listed on the online application page and you will need to submit them prior to the published deadline. The Associate Degree Nursing Selection Committee considers the applicant's admission essay, grade point average or GED scores;  ACT or SAT, or TEAS composite scores, recommendations, documentation of successful completion of prerequisites, and submission of all admission forms listed.

Students who satisfactorily complete the WSCC Practical Nursing program may be eligible for admission through the Bridge Program directly after completing the PN program. However, you will be required to meet specific admission criteria which are outlined in the application.

Note: Admission to our Advanced Placement/Bridge ADN program is open only to currently licensed practical nurses.
