The nursing program at Wright State is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing. Graduates of the program are eligible for the National Council of State Boards Licensing Examination (NCLEX) to become licensed as registered nurses.
The pre-licensure nursing program leads to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree. It is an on-campus program only. An honors program is available for students with superior academic ability.
The professional nurse is increasingly being viewed as the nucleus of the health care system, as well as serving as an advocate for health care consumers. Therefore, Wright State’s program prepares self-directed graduates who can function as generalists in a number of settings and work in collaboration with other health professionals to coordinate and improve the health care of individuals, families, and communities.

Nurses care for individuals and families from birth to death in local as well as international communities. Workplace environments can include newborn nurseries to elderly care facilities and school clinics to the World Health Organizations. A nursing education prepares you to participate in research to improve the health of people and/or improve health care practices.
“Wright State is a great value. You get an excellent education at an affordable cost.”
