The first year of study focuses on completing general education requirements, which provide the foundation for the nursing studies that begin in the sophomore year. The nursing curriculum combines both hands-on clinical experiences and classroom theory. Nursing coursework emphasizes clinical practice in a variety of acute-care hospitals and community based centers.
The Traditional Program is offered at two locations: on the Columbus MCCN Campus and Fairfield Medical Center.
In addition to regular classes, our nursing and humanities seminars encourage students to explore personal health-related interests, and can provide you with rich cultural experiences.
