A Program That’s Right for You!

No matter what your educational background or level of experience may be, the College of Nursing at Kent State has a program that's right for you!

If you are interested in becoming a nurse, you can earn an associate degree or a bachelor of science in nursing degree (including a 100% online bridge option for current RN's). Do you have a bachelor's degree in another field, but want to start a career in nursing? You can in little over a year with our accelerated BSN program.

Nurses, expand your career with one of our master's degree concentrations or the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree. Or, earn a dual degree in nursing and business administration, the MSN/MBA, in significantly less time than earning them separately. If you're an aspiring nurse researcher, our rigorous Ph.D. in nursing program will prepare you to advance nursing science and healthcare, with faculty mentorship in a wide variety of research areas.

Our flexible programs allow you to study part-time, full-time, online, in the classroom…whatever works best for you. Contact us today to learn more!
