Nursing students at The University of Toledo learn skills and procedures by using advanced simulators and the latest educational and health-care technology. They spend two years on our Health Science Campus, steps away from the UT Medical Center.
The accredited Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at The University of Toledo is the first nursing, undergraduate program in northwest Ohio. We have been a leader in nursing education for more than 50 years.
Our B.S.N. program is committed to innovation, evidenced-based clinical education and scholarship. Our students learn and practice their skills on UToledo’s Health Science Campus, home to the UT Medical Center and the state-of-the-art Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center.
There are two admission pathways to our competitive B.S.N. program:
Direct Admission Pathway. You will be directly admitted to the B.S.N. program as a freshman. Admission requirements include:
Pre-Nursing Pathway. You must complete two years of a pre-nursing curriculum and then apply to the professional sequence of the B.S.N. program. Admission requirements include:
“The pandemic has changed the way I view the profession. It has motivated me more to help vulnerable populations and facilities that are in need nationally. I am ready to graduate and help and impact lives.”
UToledo graduates who have BSN nursing degrees find employment in clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, outpatient facilities and more.
"I’m so grateful for my nursing degree and hope other students are inspired to follow their dreams, as well. Nursing has provided me with much more than a job; it’s helped define who I am as a person."
Kristen Micklash, flight nurse
Course work is both concept- and theory-based for a well-rounded nursing education that develops clinical and critical-thinking skills.
