Ohio Nursing Schools

Getting a bachelor’s of science nursing (BSN) degree is another option that can be considered by candidates who want to obtain a nursing degree. A BSN is perfect for licensed practical nurses (LPNs) who wish to become registered nurses (RNs). A BSN degree prepares these candidates to have a broader overall education and a stronger knowledge base. In addition to the clinical requirements and core nursing classes, general education credits are also required. English composition, social sciences, public speaking skills, etc. are some of the courses that are a part of this degree. A BSN degree allows you to take on a wider range of responsibilities. Once you complete your degree, you can take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX). If you pass the exam, you can obtain a RN licence and start looking for jobs. Some professionals also prefer to earn a specialization in areas like pediatrics, wound care, critical care, or school nurse.

National Estimates for Registered Nurses in Ohio

(1) Estimates for detailed occupations do not sum to the totals because the totals include occupations not shown separately. Estimates do not include self-employed workers.

(2) Annual wages have been calculated by multiplying the hourly mean wage by a “year-round, full-time” hours figure of 2,080 hours; for those occupations where there is not an hourly wage published, the annual wage has been directly calculated from the reported survey data.

(9) The location quotient is the ratio of the area concentration of occupational employment to the national average concentration. A location quotient greater than one indicates the occupation has a higher share of employment than average, and a location quotient less than one indicates the occupation is less prevalent in the area than average.
