Cedarville University’s school of nursing was recently named one of the top nursing schools in Ohio by third-party website Zippia.
The ranking was based on graduates’ mid-career earnings, the school’s emphasis on nursing and students’ median amount of debt. Cedarville was listed 10th on the list, which included Ohio State University, Case Western Reserve University and Ohio Northern University.
“Our programs are academically rigorous, equipping students with the abilities necessary to provide high quality health care in a dynamic and complex health care system,” said Dr. Angelia Mickle, dean of the school of nursing.
Grounded in biblical truth, Cedarville’s four- or three-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing program prepares students to deliver compassionate care that meets both the physical and spiritual needs of patients. The program also provides students opportunities for diverse clinical experiences and medical mission trips.
“Students should choose to study nursing at Cedarville University if God has led them to nursing as their professional calling,” added Mickle. “Here they will be educated as professional nurses while developing abilities to use nursing as the means to achieve their primary calling: spreading the Gospel.”
Cedarville also offers online graduate programs where students can earn a Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) with specialization in either family nurse practitioner, global public health or nurse educator. Students can also earn a Graduate Certificate in Global Public Health Nursing or Nursing Education.
Located in southwest Ohio, Cedarville University is an accredited, Christ-centered, Baptist institution with an enrollment of 3,963 undergraduate, graduate, and online students in more than 150 areas of study. Founded in 1887, Cedarville is recognized nationally for its authentic Christian community, rigorous academic programs, strong graduation and retention rates, accredited professional and health science offerings, and leading student satisfaction ratings.
