BGSU Firelands provides the gateway into careers in nursing through partnerships with Lorain County Community College, Firelands Regional Medical Center School of Nursing and BGSU’s eCampus. Earn your associate degree and your bachelor of science in nursing conveniently, affordably and close to home.

Earning your associate degree

Students interested in a career in nursing can utilize one of two academic pathways BGSU Firelands maintains with regional partners: an embedded cohort-based model to earn an associate degree in nursing from Lorain County Community College, or an affiliate partnership to earn a diploma in nursing from Firelands Regional Medical Center School of Nursing and a non-nursing associate degree from BGSU Firelands.

About the Lorain County Community College (LCCC) pathway:

  • All coursework is completed at the BGSU Firelands campus in Huron, Ohio.
  • Students complete nursing support courses through BGSU Firelands, preparing them for admission to LCCC’s associate degree in nursing program.
  • Students admitted to the LCCC nursing program enroll in LCCC courses taught by LCCC faculty at BGSU Firelands.
  • Graduates earn an associate degree in nursing from LCCC and are eligible to sit for RN licensure.
