Kent State University College of Nursing

One of the nation’s largest and most respected nursing schools – the College of Nursing is preparing tomorrow’s successful, globally-engaged and culturally-savvy health care leaders.

Answer Your Calling. Be a Kent State nurse.

Kent State offers nursing programs for everyone, from BSN to DNP & Ph.D.

Become an in-demand registered nurse (RN) by completing one of the most highly respected Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) programs in the nation. Offered at 5 campuses located throughout northeast Ohio, our program features clinical courses in a wide variety of settings and leading-edge simulation experiences.

Today’s nurses need a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) to stay prepared in the ever-changing health care field. That’s why Kent State offers flexible programs for Registered Nurses (RNs), Licensed Practice Nurses (LPNs), Allied Health professionals, and non-nurses who already have a bachelor’s degree, to earn a BSN. Complete the BSN in much less time than traditional, 4-year students.

Move forward in your career in an advanced nursing role, such as clinical nurse specialist (CNS), nurse administrator & leader, nurse educator, or nurse practitioner (NP). Our flexible programs include many online courses and can be completed full or part-time. Some are 100% online and can be done remotely by nurses living in any eligible state.

Earning a doctorate can advance your career to the highest level in teaching, research, clinical practice, and more. Kent State offers both the practice-focused Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) and the research-focused Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing (Ph.D.). Both programs feature highly-experienced and respected faculty and are also surprisingly affordable.

You are more than a number when you complete a degree or certificate online at Kent State, a leader in online education. We strive to provide online students the same attention and support as if they were attending class on-campus. We offer 100% online nursing programs at the bachelor’s, master’s, graduate certificate, and doctoral levels.
