Bowling Green State University Firelands College and Lorain County Community College join in a partnership that brings an Associate’s Degree (RN) Nursing Program to the Firelands campus in Huron, Ohio. The Program is accredited by the National League for Nursing. Although offered jointly, all nursing courses are held at BGSU Firelands and the clinical component of the program is completed at health care facilities in Bellevue, Norwalk, and Sandusky.
The Nursing Program has three main components: Support coursework, first-year nursing courses, and second-year nursing courses. Support courses consist of anatomy and physiology, microbiology, chemistry, writing, psychology, sociology, and math.
Admission to the clinical courses requires students to have a minimum 2.5 GPA, math, and chemistry. However, it is recommended that students complete as many support courses as possible prior to beginning the nursing courses. Support courses should be taken at BGSU Firelands and will transfer to Lorain County Community College. The nursing courses are LCCC courses that are offered on the BGSU Firelands campus. All students are enrolled as BGSU students for support courses and as LCCC students for nursing courses. The Associate of Applied Sciences in Nursing degree is earned from Lorain County Community College.
All support courses for the ADN program are applicable towards the BGSU RN to BSN Completion Program.
