OH Nursing Schools

Nursing Schools in Ohio
Ohio is a combination of thriving metropolitan cities and rural, farming regions, creating a diverse population with increasing health care needs. Cities such as Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland require the specialized care devoted to urban populations, including low-income and minorities, while areas in southern or eastern Ohio are home to underserved populations including children and the elderly.

In addressing the concerns of the underserved areas that require trained nurses, many students have received a LPN license, creating a gap in the role of nurses, as well as a need for more education opportunities to fill the shortage of RNs and Advanced Practice Nurses, Nurse Educators and Nurse Administrators. Increasing the available education for these positions is one of the priorities within the state of Ohio, and is reflected in the unique programs available through its colleges and universities.
