    Ursuline College's Breen School of Nursing is one of the most respected nursing programs in the country. Our faculty are invited regularly to speak at conferences across the U.S. and internationally, and our graduates are recruited for positions in Cleveland's top research hospitals. Here you'll learn in a high-tech skills lab that mimics a hospital ward. You'll pursue a holistic, values-based education through a curriculum that emphasizes patient-care and teamwork. In fact, ours is one of the only nursing programs in the U.S. to earn an endorsement from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and all graduates leave our program TeamSTEPPS certified.

    The baccalaureate degree program in nursing at Ursuline College is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing.

    Through SNUC, Student Nurses of Ursuline College, students attend national conferences for networking, education, and leadership experience. They also organize campus-wide events in collaboration with professional organizations such as the American Red Cross.

    Learn much more about our BSN program in our BSN Handbook.

    Careers

    Ursuline's Breen School boasts a 100% job placement rate, post-licensure. Because of extensive faculty contacts, students secure excellent field placements as undergraduates and these often lead to full-time jobs in Cleveland's top hospitals after graduation. As the national nursing shortage grows, so will demand for competent, compassionate professionals practiced in teamwork and problem solving.

    Nurses today work autonomously in a variety of acute care hospitals, long-term care facilities, and community-based agencies. As a nurse, you might choose to pursue a career as a nurse practitioner, a nurse educator, administrator, clinical specialist, or consultant.
