College of Nursing and Allied Health
Welcome to Urbana University and the College of Nursing and Allied Health. Nursing has been a vital program at Urbana University since 2003, when the program was established through an affiliation with the Springfield Regional School of Nursing. Since that time, we have had well over 100 graduates 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 students who have already become licensed nurses (RNs). The BSN Program uses core courses in the liberal arts and relevant courses in nursing science and practice to produce graduates who will serve the health care needs of the community as clinical nurse experts, leaders, and managers. Designed for working RNs, the program is delivered through the Center for Adult and Professional Studies (CAPS) and involves in-class, hybrid, and online courses conveniently offered at regional medical centers.
Our Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program allows students to pursue advanced practice nursing roles as a nurse administrator or nurse educator. The program is designed in much the same way as the BSN Program to provide convenience with realistic expectations for the working RN.
Our RN-MSN Program is designed to meet the needs of adult learners who already possess an RN license and a non-nursing bachelor’s degree, and who desire to pursue a graduate degree in nursing. Courses in the program are a blending of RN-BSN core courses that are essential requisites to MSN graduate study.
The Northwest Ohio Allied Health Education Consortium was established in October 2007 to increase access to Allied Health education in the region. Through a partnership with Marion Technical College in Marion, Northwest Technical College in Archibold, and Rhodes State College in Lima, Ohio, educational programs in specific allied health fields are available in areas where they weren't available in the past. The distance learning format enables students to take classes from Rhodes State College on the Urbana University campus and to arrange for their clinical experiences in healthcare agencies close to home. The BS in Healthcare Management program is a completion program designed for graduates with associate degrees in allied health to prepare them for supervisory/management positions in their respective disciplines.
Our Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The program combines classroom education with clinical field experience to prepare students for a career in the allied health profession of athletic training.
