College of Nursing and Allied Health
Welcome to the webpage for the Urbana University College of Nursing & Allied Health. Nursing has been a vital program at the University since 2003, when the program was established through an affiliation with the Springfield Regional School of Nursing. Since that time, the program has graduated over 100 students who have assumed leadership roles in healthcare in their respective organizations and communities.
Urbana University offers the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree to individuals who currently hold a nursing license (RNs). The BSN Program curriculum includes core courses in the liberal arts and relevant coursework in Nursing science and practice to produce graduates ready to serve the healthcare needs of the community as clinical nurse experts, leaders, and managers. Designed for working RNs, the program is delivered through the Center for Adult & Professional Studies (CAPS) and involves face-to-face, hybrid, and online courses conveniently offered at regional medical centers.
Anyone interested in becoming a registered nurse (RN) must enroll in a pre-licensure nursing program that prepares students for the NCLEX-RN license examination. Urbana University does not offer a pre-licensure program, and only accepts applications for admission from those holding a current, valid RN license. For information on pre-licensure programs, please see the Ohio League for Nursing’s “2014 Nursing Programs in Ohio” brochure.
The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) Program allows students to pursue advanced Nursing roles in administration or education. The program is designed in much the same way as the BSN Program, to provide convenience – along with realistic expectations – for the working RN.
The RN-MSN Program is designed to meet the needs of adult learners who hold a current RN license and a non-nursing Bachelor’s degree, and who wish to pursue a graduate degree in Nursing. The program features core RN-BSN courses that are essential requisites for MSN studies.
The baccalaureate and master’s degree nursing programs at Urbana University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, One Dupont Circle, NW, Suite 530, Washington DC 20036, (202) 887-6791.
