RN Nursing Program
The two-year associate of applied science nursing degree program at UC Blue Ash (UCBA) is approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing and is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission. It is designed to prepare graduates to care for people across the life span in a variety of settings. Nurses provide culturally competent, safe and effective care in a variety of settings including hospitals, long-term care facilities, home health agencies, hospice, adult day care or schools.
The curriculum combines nursing courses with general education courses in the humanities and sciences. In addition to classroom instruction, each week students engage in clinical activity in hospitals, long-term care facilities, community agencies, the home or the college laboratories. Graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for registered nurses.
Graduates are able to pursue their Bachelor of Science (BSN) degree from the UC College of Nursing through the RN-BSN Mobility Program.
In addition to the traditional RN Track, other options for pursuing a nursing education are available. A LPN- RN Completion Track for licensed practical nurses that gives credit for previous clinical practice experience is available for LPNs.
Selective admission to the UCBA RN program starts 2014. Information will be posted Spring 2013. Admission criteria is under review and subject to change.
The student application process is competitive, in that there are more applications received than clinical spaces available. Once admitted to the RN program, the student will be required to successfully complete the following nursing courses.
Satisfactory completion of these nursing courses plus additional general education course requirements will take two full academic years and will result in an Associate Degree of Applied Science in Nursing Technology and eligibility to take the NCLEX-RN exam.
UC Blue Ash College is an open access college, meaning that if the student is a high school graduate or has received the General Education Development (GED), that student is eligible for admission. To be admitted to the college, the student completes an application form; submits the accompanying application fee; and provides an official transcript from high school (this must be sent from the school in a sealed envelope) or GED certificate and test scores. If a student plans to transfer to UC Blue Ash College from another college or university, official transcripts from all previous colleges must be submitted. Acceptance into the college does not guarantee acceptance into the RN Program . UC Blue Ash operates on a rolling admissions policy, which means that the student may begin taking non-nursing courses at the start of any term, not only the Autumn term.
