College of Nursing

 

UToledo – one of Ohio's best nursing schools

The UToledo College of Nursing prepares nurses to make an impact in their communities. You’ll gain critical hands-on experience whether studying for a B.S.N., M.S.N., D.N.P. or graduate certificate.

We’re proud to be a leader in nursing education with over 50 years of experience in educating highly competent, compassionate nurses. This allows us to provide excellent education to all of our students and because of this our registered nurse examination taken by graduates of our B.S.N. and Graduate-Entry M.S.N. programs, consistently exceeds the average in the state and nation. Our innovative Graduate-Entry Master of Science in Nursing program caters to those with a bachelor’s degree in a field other than nursing but who want to pursue a nursing career. Our online, self-paced RN-B.S.N. program is the first of its kind in Ohio. 

Some elements of our program excellence:

  • Expert faculty guidance
  • Cutting-edge curricula
  • Advanced clinical simulation and interprofessional education
  • Patient and family centered care philosophy

UToledo has relationships with some of the best clinical sites in the region, including The University of Toledo Medical Center and ProMedica Healthcare. Our students and graduates have the opportunity to take advantage of real-world clinical and career opportunities.
