Pre-Nursing - BS
The College of Health and Human Services offers a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) for traditional students and an RN to BSN for post-traditional students. In September 2018, Mercy Health and Bowling Green State University announced that they have signed a letter of intent to transfer operations of Mercy College of Ohio to BGSU. Mercy Health will serve as a key partner with BGSU and will provide clinical experiences for nursing students and employment opportunities for graduates. BGSU is committed to continuing a 45+ year tradition of graduating nurses for the region and beyond.
Once you complete the BSN degree, you are eligible to take the licensing examination to become a registered nurse and to pursue graduate studies in nursing. If you have an associate degree in nursing or earned a diploma, you may consider the on-line RN-BSN completion degree. You also have additional career choices through the Health Science major if you decide you would like to pursue a different focus in health care.
