Academic Programs in Nursing
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 separate degrees. If you're an aspiring nurse researcher, our rigorous Ph.D. offers faculty mentorship in a wide variety of research areas and will prepare you to advance nursing science and healthcare.
