Registered nurses, or RNs, are licensed medical professionals who care for patients who are ill, injured or recovering from surgery. Registered nurses typically work in hospitals, but can also be found in physicians' offices, home healthcare services or social assistance agencies.

Registered Nursing Schools in Ohio

You can become an RN by earning a bachelor of science degree in nursing (BSN) from a college or university. You can also get an associate degree at a community college or a diploma from a hospital-based nursing school. Registered nurses who earn a master's degree in nursing (MSN) are known as advanced practice nurses. These nurses can perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures as well as prescribe medication. As a registered nursing student, you'll receive both classroom instruction and hands-on experience. Registered nursing programs may include coursework in nursing studies, health law and ethics, epidemiology, anatomy and patient confidentiality (HIPAA). You can earn a nursing degree or diploma from an online or campus-based program at one of the many Ohio RN schools. After graduating from an approved nursing program, you'll need to pass a national licensing examination. Other requirements, such as continuing education credits, vary by state. Enrolling at one of the many RN schools in Ohio is the first step to becoming a registered nurse.
