Preparing for a Registered Nursing Career
Marshall University Mid-Ohio Valley Center’s registered nursing major leads to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree. Both the National League of Nursing and the American Nurses Association endorse the B.S.N. as the minimum requirement of professional nursing practice. The B.S.N. degree provides you with the education necessary to assume all types of roles in nursing including leadership, community health, and research; it also facilitates career advancement and flexibility, as well as exciting opportunities throughout the United States and across the world.
Taking the Licensure Exam
Marshall University Mid-Ohio Valley Center graduates are eligible to take the National
Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) to be a licensed registered nurse in any state. Graduates of our program do well on their examination and are in high demand by some of the finest hospitals in the tri-state area. Many seek further education in graduate and professional schools. Nursing graduates obtain positions in settings such as medical centers, clinics, nursing homes, home health agencies, schools, industrial work sites, mental health facilities, and the mission field.
