The Nursing program offers the student an opportunity to become actively involved in health care as a professional nurse with a bachelor of science in nursing degree. The curriculum emphasizes a liberal education combined with the nursing theory and clinical practice needed to develop the educated nurse. A graduate of the nursing program is capable of providing health services for individuals, families, and communities and eligible to take the licensing examination to become a registered nurse. The program provides preparation for future graduate study and leadership in nursing.
The consortium of The University of Toledo College of Nursing and Bowling Green State University provides an innovative and unique baccalaureate nursing program. Undergraduate students take prerequisite courses in the basic sciences and liberal arts during the first two years at BGSU, then attend classes on the University of Toledo Health Science Campus and clinical training at area hospitals during the last two years of the program.
The University of Toledo College of Nursing is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and has provisional approval of the Ohio Board of Nursing. Tuition for the nursing program is the same as for all other degree programs. Additional charges, however, are required for uniforms, professional liability insurance, specific health tests and immunizations, exit exam, convocation, lab and upper division professional course fees. The classes in the nursing major are taught in Toledo at the University of Toledo Health Science Campus. For the RN/BSN track, classes are online, with advisors at BGSU Main Campus and BGSU Firelands. Transportation to classes and to clinical placements is the responsibility of the student.
The Nursing program offers two tracks to obtain a bachelor of science in nursing degree:
- BSN for students entering the nursing profession;
- RN/BSN for students who are associate degree or diploma graduates and have current unencumbered license as a registered nurse.
Students may apply to the pre-nursing program with a minimum of 3.00 cumulative high school GPA OR 20 ACT score. Students who do not meet the minimum requirements may apply to the pre-nursing program if they earn a GPA of 3.0 or higher after completing 30+ hours of BGSU coursework. To remain in the pre-nursing program, students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
Additional admission requirement information is available from the College Office.
