Give to the College of Nursing

Kent State University College of Nursing has been a leader in nursing education for nearly 50 years. As one of the largest nursing institutions in the United States, we are honored by the legacy that many of our alumni, emeriti faculty, administrators, and staff have given us. 

Today, we are building upon this legacy by incorporating more technology in the classroom and labs, and are conducting innovative research to improve patient outcomes. We are also offering the latest terminal degree in nursing, the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), as well as the Ph.D. In doing so, our graduates are well-prepared to become tomorrow’s leaders in healthcare.
