Need job security? University of Findlay nursing nurse career - WFSB 3 Connecticut

Need job security? Try the nursing program at the University of Findlay

Posted: Updated:
FINDLAY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

 

Big changes for the University of Findlay are in the works. 

The university will soon begin accepting students for their nursing program. 

That's great news for graduates looking for viable career with some job security - because there is a growing need for qualified nurses - and that need will only grow.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, it is predicted that there will be 1.2 million job openings for registered nurses in the next eight years.

There is also expected to be a shortage of registered nurses by the year 2020.

To meet the projected need, an additional 30,000 nurses need to graduate from nursing schools annually, an expansion of 30 percent over the current number graduating.

That's where this new nursing program comes in.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Program at the University of Findlay has received approval from the Higher Learning Commission, the Ohio Board of Nursing and the Ohio Board of Regents. 

The school will begin enrolling its first class immediately. 

Findlay's nursing program will admit 30 students per year. Classes begin in the fall - starting fall of 2014. 

Graduates of the program will be eligible to take the National State Board of Nursing Licensure exam to become registered nurses. 

Students may apply to the program at www.findlay.edu/nursing.

Please contact Marjorie Walker, Ed.D., associate professor and chair of nursing, with questions at 419-434-4622 or walkerm1@findlay.edu.
