Open Nursing Forum offered October 1 at BGSU Firelands

The University of Toledo College of Nursing, in cooperation with Bowling Green State University Firelands College, will host an Open Forum Tuesday, October 1, from 5-7 p.m. in Cedar Point Center conference room 2002 at BGSU Firelands in Huron.

Prospective students are welcome to stop by from 5-7 p.m. to meet with nursing representatives from the UT College of Nursing and BGSU Firelands.

The open forum is for registered nurses (RNs) interested in pursuing the RN to Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and RNs with bachelor’s degrees interested in achieving Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degrees with majors in advanced practice, education or clinical nurse leader. UT also offers a new Post-Baccalaureate to DNP program (BSN to DNP) with majors in Family Nurse Practitioner and Pediatric Nurse Practitioner.

Graduate certificates are offered for RNs with MSN degrees. A person with a bachelor’s degree who is not a nurse and wants to become an RN is invited to explore the MSN Graduate Entry Clinical Nurse Leader program.  A Post-Master’s to Doctor of Nursing Practice (MSN-DNP) program also is offered jointly with Wright State University.

Undergraduate courses in the nursing major are offered online with a variety of learning experiences. Nursing advisors are available at the UT Health Science Campus in Toledo and BGSU Firelands in Huron. The baccalaureate program is offered as a consortium with UT and BGSU. All of the Master of Science in Nursing courses are offered at the UT Health Science Campus, with an online option for some core courses.  The BSN to DNP program is offered as a combination of classroom and web-assisted/online courses. The MSN to DNP program utilizes distance learning technology.
