NURSING CURRICULUM REALIGNMENT INFORMATION
In January 2011, the Division of Nursing announced a curriculum realignment for the Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) program beginning Fall semester 2011. The change incorporates the latest occupational standards and has been approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing (OBN) and the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC).
- Students entering in Fall 2011 will start under the realigned curriculum.
- Current students will be presented with the realigned curriculum information during the first week of classes in the Spring 2011 semester.
- Following the presentation, current students should schedule an individual meeting with an advisor to discuss the decision of staying in the old curriculum (using course substitution) or transferring to the realigned curriculum. Advisor scheduling is handled through the LRC. Following the meeting, students will complete a signature sheet indicating their decision.
- Students who remain in the old curriculum must complete their degree coursework by Fall 2012 or will be required to transfer to the realigned curriculum.
