Ways to Support the School of Nursing

Emphasizing its commitment to creating public good and meeting regional workforce needs, Bowling Green State University has launched a School of Nursing through its College of Health and Human Services.

The school will help support the growth of BGSU’s new Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and the online Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN) program, as well as lay the groundwork for future academic program expansions.

School of Nursing Central HallAs a public university for the public good, BGSU prides itself in helping students achieve their goals of becoming health care professionals who provide exceptional care to individuals, across all lifespans, throughout Ohio, the nation and the world.

The new School of Nursing will help position BGSU to meet the critical demand for nurses both in the region and throughout the country as the nursing field remains one of the fastest-growing industries, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In providing a state-of-the art education for BGSU students, the College of Health and Human Services has constructed a nearly 15,000-square foot simulation space in the Central Hall Annex (formerly the College of Business building on the Bowling Green campus).

The simulation space will provide hands-on experience for nursing students on both campuses.

Equipment and technology costs for the simulation space total nearly $1 million. Robust updates and enhancements to equipment annually will be essential to ensure our students continue to be highly efficient and career ready. Equipment includes state-of-the-art, high-fidelity patient simulation equipment, including simulation manikins, computer peripherals and software. Simulation in nursing education involves the use of sophisticated life-like manikins in realistic patient environments, which is key to preparing a qualified work force.

As BGSU positions itself as a leader for in-demand careers in healthcare, the following naming opportunities are available to bolster growth and provide financial longevity to the School of Nursing and affiliated healthcare programs:
